Nature’s first gray is gray.

This is one of those shots where I think that black and white expresses better what I saw than the original color would.

There are a few colors in nature than absolutely transfix me. The color of tall grass in mid-winter is one. The color of forrest undergrowth in early spring is another. Just the way that first green of the season is so vibrant and almost luminescent, and the way it contrasts with the wet leaves from last fall decaying on the forest floor.

That green is all well and good, but I think that this black and white version shows how that green hue glows among the trees in a way that a color image could not.
