Day 2 / 5 Black and White Photo Challenge, nominated/challenged by Steve Parker.
One of my favorite locations to shoot – Chautauqua Park in Boulder, home of the Flatirons as these rock faces are named. Here’s to hoping how the Flatirons will look when this arctic blast of cold shivers into Colorado this week. This image was captured in early February 2011, and, if I remember correctly, Kevin Barnes and Steve can verify, the temperature this particular morning was a bitter 5 degrees with a sub-zero wind chill. (What was I thinking, leaving a warm bed?)
Today I nominated/challenged Andy Garza, and April Fischer. It’s optional, but try to post 1 BW image a day for 5 straight days, and each day nominate one+ person to the challenge. Good luck!

I love this little chapel on the West side of Longmont. But there’s really only two sides to shoot it from: the West and the South, due to these little posts. There are four light posts that surround this chapel but only the two on the South side are ever lit. Having said this, it’s a challenge to get a different look when shooting from the same sides and angles all the time.
Here I’ve tried capturing various (and differing) compositions – hopefully appealing too.
Please, leave me a comment below telling me what composition you like best!
