“B&W Beach”


Shot this Mangrove Tree along a isolated stretch of beach in Long Key State Park, the bright sand and deep blue skies made it a natural for a conversion.

  1. You take great pictures. Does the type of camera really affect the picture you take, or is it simply the person behind a camera?

  2. That’s striking! I love that kind of scene.

  3. I think a little bit of both, it’s nice to have nice equipment, but if you have a good eye for it you can do just as well without all the expensive gear.

  5. Lovely photo! I can almost feel the water lapping over my toes. The image brings back memories of south Florida and the familiar aromas of the coast. Thanks!

  6. Loving the B&W Bernie. Color is great but nothing is as dramatic as the B&Ws. Ron.

  14. This is a really cool photo – once again I had to take a look step back and then look again. Prolly it’s old age creeping into my mind. :) What I find fascinating is how clear these shots are .. this also makes for a really cool conversion as well. This shot pretty much says to me “isolation” and “timelessness.” Once again Bernie – wow!

  15. Hey Bernie, you got some awesome images from your trip.

  16. Awesome Bernie.

    I love how you placed the tree barely off center to the left. Love your black and white points as well. Clouds are dreamy. I think that is what Key West is for anyways, dreaming.

  17. Bernie, this is one of those b/w’s that take your breath away. The contrast is amazing, and I can imagine what that sky looked like in color. You know, a good photographer recognizes (as you did) which images would look great converted to black and white. This one is perfect for it. Wow.

  18. HI! I came upon this site by trying to look up a friend from my teen years. I know a guy named Terry Kasper from Madison. I believe he is about 42 yrs old. His mother’s name is Sherry and she married my neighbor Jim Ponsler, I think his brothers names were Chuck and Tim. Anyway , was just curious about how he was doing. Hopefully o.k. Last I new he was in the Army? or some other branch of the service.

    Oh, and I think your pictures all great!
    Sincerely, Cindy Brooks

  19. Cindy..I can’t tell you much about him, he was a distant cousin and I really never spent much time with him.

    Thanks for the compliment though, take care !
