Race Brook Falls trail in high contrast

Race Brook Falls

Race Brook Falls Trail, Southwest Massachusetts. Anne and I took a walk up this trail to the Appalachian Trail intersection. Since I’ve photographed the heck out of this trail in color I figured I’d be bold and just set the Ricoh GR to high contrast B/W without a RAW backup. Oh boy.

These images are straight from the camera via Lightroom with no adjustment or cropping. I’m really enjoying this experiment and it’s giving my photography a much needed kick in the ass.

  1. Thank you eric0704 and mv71, I appreciate your kind words. It’s been a lot of fun to experiment with the Ricoh GR, it’s a fantastic camera that looks quite simple on the outside and is very easy to use but has lots of great features that one can explore. I’ve had it a while but am only just now getting out of the rut that was my photographic process leading up to it.
