Black and White and Sepia

I have a great fondness for high contrast photos with a touch of sepia in them.  

Just a touch. 

Our woods are full of sepia this time of year - beech leaves and oak leaves stay on the trees until new leaves push them off in early spring.

The creek beds show sepia layers of iron deposits.   

The woods are carpeted with the rest of last years leaves.    Sepia.

 Then, when it snows... 

the trees are black with white frosting and the sepia shines like gold. 

Sweet Mother of chiaroscuro, it takes my breath away.   

If you had to pick a favorite, which would you pick?


  1. Love, love, love these photos. I want to stick my hands in that little waterfall and get them cold and wet.

  2. Poetic and lyrical post and gorgeous pictures! Beautiful and I too, love that sepia accent... wouldn't it be nice in a room? Black, white and sepia accents, pillows, maybe...
