The Desert in B&W

I've said it before, and will say it again... There's something about the desert that lends itself to b&w photography! I've not had a b&w post in a long time, so here are a few, somewhat random, b&w photos. The only thing they have in common is they were all taken in the local desert and all were taken in 2019.
Sullivan Road, 29 Palms, CA. A quintessential dusty desert road!

Majestic Arch, Joshua Tree National Park

View toward the Sheephole Wilderness

View toward the Coxcombs



Mysterious fire ring.



Linking up with Skywatch Friday.
Thanks for stopping by!!

  2. The desert lends itself to B&W and color photos! I'm still amused at your previous snow post - there's been so much snow in the past week that our Colorado ski areas have been closed at times!

  3. You have made the desert come alive. The B&W really makes the scene more dynamic.

  4. Somehow, B&W photography never allured me. Your pictures altered my thoughts for sure

  5. Your black and whites are beautiful - not everyone is equally equipped! Just sayin' ... the favorite of your captures is for me the 4th from the bottom! It looks like the profile of a giant mouse (on the right) is leaning into something ... on the left.

  16. B&W does give these landscape views a special "something". Liked these all! I need to experiment with B&W photography, too. One day.

  22. Black & white also makes it seem like the pictures are very old. Or at least older.

  23. I have a special place in my heart for monochrome. Bringing up the shadows in the Majestic Arch shot might make it pop a bit more.

  26. Incredible formations made more beautiful by the BnW.

  27. The desert photos look beautiful yet so different. The rock formations seem more alive in b&w.

  28. Looking good in black and white

  29. Black and white gives a complete different feeling to the same scene in color. The last shot is so dramatic, portending frightening storms from the ominous clouds moving in.

  30. The last photo looks like someone just reached down and plopped those mountains there.
    Gorgeous photos.

  31. You are the Angel Adams of Joshua Tree.

  32. I love the desert in color or without. These are just gorgeous photos. Thanks for sharing them.

  33. Sweet! The first one looks like it was taken in the "good old days" before color photography. The rocky ones could have been taken on Mars … quite surreal! Thanks for sharing a different perspective on your world.
