Usually Colorific, but Not This Time

Autumn is famous as the season of glorious displays of color, but that doesn’t have to be all that intrigues a photographer at this time of year. Here are some black and white images of what has caught my eye this early October:

Strong Verticals

Especially on a wet fall day the strong contrast of tree trunks makes for a dramatic image.

The autumn season is also when the riverĀ  is at its lowest level, exposing sandbar “beaches” not normally seen. And those beaches reveal some interesting forms, very suited to black and white (or mostly monochromatic) presentation:
