Cumulus Cloud - Looking West from My Home in Silver City, NM (Should be viewed at maximum)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This time of year in the Southwest of New Mexico is called 'our monsoon season', which, as a relative newcomer to this area, I find rather amusing. This is an image taken from my home on a road that takes off from the northern part of Little Walnut Road in Silver City, NM. I just could not resist the temptation to try my hand at B&W for a change. Please enjoy it and I look forward to any comments that come my way! A friendly 'Hello' from River!

Wonderful sky! LIKE! Greetings from Ukraine. Yuri.

I'm so glad you like my B&W sky, Yuri and for your compliment on my other landscape photo just after it. I tried very hard to get the forground trees in the B&W to snow different values but I couldn't overcome the strong blackness by dodging. I felt the cloud values turned out very well, however. I have an 'unrealistic' desire to emulate the likes of Ansel Adams and a few others who are the kings of B&W! Hah! Greetings and best wishes to you, my friend! River

Amazing clouds.


Warm wishes, Roman.

Thank you, Roman!! Is the photo beside your name one of your photos? If so, would you tell me what page number it is on? I'd add it to my favorites gallery; I'm totally mad about horses and have been since I was a little girl with pigtails! Thanks! Yours, River

Greetings from Germany, Horst

Thanks to you, Horst, in Germany! You put it under my B&W, but no matter, I knew which one it was you liked. Greetings to you, River
