“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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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
