I’m on a photo journey, as many of you know.  Thus far it’s taken me from my home state of Washington, through Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nevada and now California.  The purpose of the trip is to shoot fall landscapes, and as such, much of the work has been colorful by default; it’s the most colorful season of the year.  That doesn’t mean I’m getting soft, or I’ve lost my love for graphic monochrome images.  Quite the contrary.  Here are nine recent images from the road that thrive in the absence of color.  I’d love to hear what you think!


As always, custom fine art prints of all of my images are available. If you like my work, please follow me online at: FacebookInstagramGoogle+500px and Twitter.  More importantly, share it with a friend and give me a hi-5 when you see me next; let’s keep things in the real world here.  Thanks!

  1. Nice use of bw Scott! I recently started tip toeing back into it. it’s hard for me with digital and I don’t shoot film much anymore. Anyhoo… It was a fun ride from this side of your Western photo adventure. Glad you took the time to share your photo story. Cheers!

  2. These pictures are quite brilliant, man! Black and White imagery, like these, isolates the noise and distraction that is typically introduced with color and focuses the eye and other senses on the subject matter. Nothing more, nothing less. Thanks for sharing.
