I absolutely love black and white photography. Why I don’t try more is beyond me at the moment. I do hope to change that as I recently purchased Nik’s Silver Efex Pro and look forward to using it for some creative monochrome images. With that aside let’s get to today’s image.
This is the bridge that the Durango Silverton narrow gauge railroad passes through when it makes it way into or out of Durango. I found it interesting that it was made from steel and wood. I didn’t get a chance to check the history but I’m sure the wood section is original with the steel structure being a later add on. It spans the Animas River so I don’t know if part of the original was washed out or not. I’ll have to look into that.
To help increase the perspective of the track I used a little FP by OnOne. Hopefully my next bw image will be processed with the new Nik software.
Until next time…
