Sometimes Things Really Are Black and White
Yesterday was trail work day with my mountain bike club at Fort Ord. Afterwards I rode the trails around Creekside Terrace, mostly the 30’s and 70’s. The terrain on that side of the monument is steeper and a little more technical than the 8th and Gigling trailhead side where I usually ride out of. The position of the sun and the shadows on the trail either washed out or blacked out everything I was trying to photograph. I decided if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em, and went with a black and white approach. It’s fun when the conditions force you to work a little harder and be more creative. My expectations were pretty low but I did end up with a few nice shots.
