Redux in Black and White

Initially posted in color in April 2014, I just converted the above image into a black and white pencil sketch.

First posted in September 2012 in black and white, this Yosemite view has long been one of my favorites.

Previously in de-saturated color in December 2012, the lines and texture seem to pop better in black and white.

… on the moss tops of the rocks outside my window today, teasing me to catch the light as it danced into and reflected from the moss. I never quite tagged it.

“Come and see the works of God, Who is awesome in His deeds toward the sons of man.”
