The mystery of black and white

What is it about photos shot in black and white? Images that would not be very interesting suddenly take on an air of mystery and sophistication! I don’t always think to shoot in black and white because I love colour. However, some objects and scenes just scream to be shot in black and white.

Clear the other side of the country: Capilano Forest, BC. The mist ups the mystery factor!
