Q: What is the secret to great B&W photos?

A: Do you know?

It was almost too dark to shoot this, probably 8:30 pm. I had to crank up the ISO and it was enough to show off the beauty of what I saw crossing the bridge. The famous last words, "Turn around. I need to shoot this". The clouds that nestle in the mountains are so beautiful... but hard to shoot... to convey what is witnessed. I think, this time, I did. The track certainly added some flavor.

    Thanks Davide ~ I'm always surprised when I process a picture that I think is fab and it's rather a bust on jpg. Not sure what that means. Certainly not enough to lose sleep over it.

    Nothing beats a striaght track (with no electric gantries or crud around) for drama. Where do they go? Who cares ,really, they're gorgeous!
