Black and White in the Mountains

The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

    • Aww… I found the mountains in this version so velvety that I had to post it. I am particularly happy that you liked Olfield…. Warm greetings to you my dear.


    • ๐Ÿ™‚ The combo of pic and music?, the pic and the quote?, the music and the quote? or shades in the photo… or the whole thing? ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you Marion ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. Your B&W series turning out to be great stuff…
    The contrast in the colors stands out beautifully. Hope to see some more B&W in the series.


  2. You really are impressing the heck out of me with these B&W images. I’m going to be asking you for tips pretty soon. ๐Ÿ˜€


    • Cool, this will save me a trip. I hear it is awfully cold and windy over there. Tonight our football team is playing there with Iceland. Poor chaps are stalactites ๐Ÿ˜‰


      • They play with shorts and vests Canada Goose ? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This country is absolutly magnificent but, indeed, it’s cold, windy and wild… Dangerous volcanos and warm water under the ground… And there aren’t a lot of inhabitants so if you’re lost and if you have nothing to drink or eat… Or to protect your body to the cold… You become a SIGA ๐Ÿ˜†


          • Youpie ! Je connais un mot de croate ! ๐Ÿ™‚

            Non, jamais ๐Ÿ™‚ Mais j’ai beaucoup lu sur ce pays ๐Ÿ™‚ Encore mon amour pour les pays nordiques รงa :$ (et des pays de l’est aussi). ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Hi there! I love your pictures. I am a filmmaker here in NYC and re-doing my website. I am looking for a beautiful B&W picture to use as the landing page of the new website. We are a very small production company here in NY. Would you be willing to let us use one of your pictures for our website? We would be happy to credit you and link to your blog etc? Please do let me know. Nice to meet you!


    • Hello, What of my photos did you have in mind? I am willing to let you use one of my pictures under condition that credit and the link to my blog is provided. You can also contact me at, and if necessary I can provide you with a larger format if you wish so. Regards, Paula


  4. The contrast between the mountain and the snow looks beautiful with the cloud shrouded top! The contrast is done so nicely because the sides of the mountain seem velvety black rather than just flat dark. Very nice! We are a little challenged here in Florida for mountain shots…Big Sigh!!
