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!

This is one of my all-time favourite photos that I’ve ever taken, and the first photo I ever sold. It doesn’t get much more mysterious than this!
