Nondescript Color at 11,500 Feet
A quick stop at the summit before diving down to highway 70 on a business trip. The color rendition in this image was really bi-tonal. There is not much color above 11,000 feet. Black and white was a natural transition. I utilized Photomatix Pro Plugin for Aperture to merge the AE brackets and perform the BW conversion. In black and white the sky and and texture of the rock and the few trees at lower elevations comes forth.
