Black & White Sunday: Landscape

The choice of black and white is very popular in street, architecture and portrait photography, but it is a less obvious option when it comes to shooting landscapes.

I could not resist posting another photo (that some of you could seeΒ in colour before) of Corsica, but this time in black and white.

Do you have some black and white landscapes that you want to share? If you do, please leave me the links to your Black & White Sunday posts; you have time till next Sunday.

NOTICE: I’m taking a break next week, so the next scheduled post will be on the 12 of March – guest challenge with the theme: “abstract”.

  1. Paula, this is absolutely gorgeous. This is a strong composition, and it looks amazing enlarged.

    Yes, I’m a B/W addict in general but I’ve always loved B/W landscapes. One of my ongoing projects is about B/W landscapes, and I’ve shown very little of it. I’ve shot lots, and rejected many from the project. There are currently 11 completed pieces in it that I’m satisfied with. I’ve so far revealed only 3 to others. In time, I will begin showing the rest.


  2. I love it in colour, but it is incredibly striking in black and white. The clouds are something special. And I do like landscapes in b&w.

    Have a great break Paula. Is this your Venice trip?


    • If I manage to get rid of the flu by then, I promise I will πŸ˜‰ Thanks mate. I will catch up in a few days.

    • Happy to read your review Ese. You are always observant. Also, I am glad to hear that Sunday brings serenity to you. That mountain lake is captured so perfectly and I am very grateful for your entry. xx


    • Thank you so much, Lisa. It was inspiring to walk on that beach and shoot it. I think it is better in B&W. Have a great Sunday, dear!

  4. Every time I see one of your photos I decide I’m never going to take another photo! This one is magnificent (have I used that superlative before?) – the light, the atmospherics, the composition.

  6. Strong composition, with the line of the bay leading to those glorious clouds! I might post a B&W landscape or two soon….

  8. This was an out and out stunner in colour! I loved the limpid shades of sky and shoreline. πŸ™‚ But I agree it’s wonderfully dramatic in black and white.
    How are you, Paula? Coping with work and illness?


  9. Beautiful selection of image for this theme and the clouds really played it’s part πŸ™‚

    Great selection of music as well …


    • That’s music in Corsican language (a mixture that has parts of Italian and French in it). I am glad you have enjoyed it Sreejith. Thank you.

    • Hi Jo, I am not over my flu yet, and there is weather alarm here, in Slovenia and in Venice too. I guess we’ll be off tomorrow, but it does not look like fun at the moment. Bora which is typical of Northern Adriatic is not fun.


  10. A stunning capture Paula! Hope you are completely recovered and all set for your Venice break. Your photos are going to be a treat, rain or shine…..can’t wait πŸ™‚

      • Thanks Paula. It took me a while to find an image to work with but when I found the right one the creative process flowed along. It was a very interesting challenge I thought.


  12. Just popping in to ask how it went, Paula? Hope you were well enough to enjoy it and are feeling better now. πŸ™‚ Hugs!


    • Hellooooo Jo. I had a wonderful time in Venice, though I am a bit sicker now than when I left. Seeing a doc in 18 days – I guess I will get better before that time πŸ˜€


  13. I simply adore your landscapes Paula! They are simply the best captures ever! This one looks stunning in B&W! πŸ˜€ β™₯
