The Open Range

My trip to Green River, Utah felt like an old western movie the whole time I was there.  The southwestern scenes just felt like they came from an old black and white western movie and I felt like John Wayne was going to show up on horseback any minute.  The tall mountain buttes, the open range and a cloudy sunset just felt like it should be in black and white so today’s image is just that, a black and white…monochrome.

  • Beautiful shot Rick. Great composition, and the B&W processing is perfect for this scene.

  • Yep – absolutely right to go do down the B&W route. This looks excellent. Can’t beat the simplicity of monochrome sometimes

  • This looks great in mono. The sky has bags of atmosphere too.
