    The fall weather brings cool temps in the morning and thick fog. I was able to escape from work for a bit to shoot some pics. this is the same shot in color and B&W. I like both versions, but i'm wondering what your thoughts are on it.

    Oh wow I really like these. The black and white version gives it such a dark/mystical feel.

    I like both for different reasons, they both have a very different "feel". The color version seems cheery and seasonal, the b&w seems a little more ominous and creepy. Even though they are the same composition, these two photos are completely different to me, thanks for sharing them both.

    Damn, JTH beat me to it - I was just about to say exactly the same thing! Also I love the sort of 'semi-symmetry' of the two interlocking trees; the picture gives me the impression of a slightly distorted, mirrored shot on first glance.

    Lovely - keep both!

    Thanks guys for the nice comments. I really am leaning towards the B&W version myself.

    The black and white is very mystic, indeed, but as the colour-freak who I am, I prefer the first.
    My only thought is: never take your normal car into woods like this one. WALK (as you did), or you WALK out of the woods.

    hahahaha. Nice write up. I have a jacked up jeep for those kinds of trips. These woods are actually up in the bluffs on the edge of town. There are about 15 miles of trail over many many acres of park. I am lucky to have it so close. Here is another shot of the bluffs i was in.
