POTD: Half Moon

Half-Moon Zion National Park, Utah 2011

We’re in Zion for a couple of days. With this shot I guess I was trying to channel Ansel Adams and tease out a classic black and white landscape. There’s no Half Dome here though so I had to settle for a half moon. The funny thing is that I was really responding to all the brilliant colors in the canyon yesterday so I was sure I was going to end up with all color images for a change. But when I got to working with them on the computer last night, I only liked the results in black and white. So much for channeling Ansel Adams, the king of previsualization of image results as part of his artistic workflow.
