PNW Photo of the Week – Mount Baker

Yay! It’s time for another Pacific North West Photo of the Week!

I’m excited. How about you?

I hope you’ve been liking the black and white photos, because this week, I have one more for you.

This week I bring you…

Mount Baker

I shoot digital, so all of my images are initially in color. This gives me the choice at processing time:

Does this work better as a color or black and white image?

Most of the time I end up going with color. I do love color photography. But sometimes the color in an image does not add anything to it.

In this case there were greens in the foreground trees and very muted early sunset colors painting the western slope. But the true star of this photo is the volcano; the sharp jut of stone and ice hoisting through the clouds.

I felt the contrast of the fluffy clouds, smooth white glaciers and snow fields, and ultra dark stone and trees told more of a story.

I hope you like this week’s image, and I promise next week’s shot will be in color.
