The Lights and Shades-of-Grey edition:

As I went through my travel albums I found that I had more photographs from that morning’s (read post- Utah’s Rocky Deserts -I) Amtrak journey through Utah. It was interesting to see how light played on the rocks and bushes and created shadows as it rose.

So here is another post of Utah’s rocky deserts catching the morning light. I decided to go black and white this time, to keep monotony at bay and to show you what the light does to the landscape. So here are the pictures of the semi arid-area in black and white and several shades of grey:

    Well, I have to admit I yearned for the color of these wonderful shots, but the more I looked, the more I was taken in by the light. I do love the little boy with his face pasted to the window … really sweet. Nice job, but I never get tired of the colors of Utah so you could have done it either way and I would have been happy …

      I'm sure Andrea. 🙂 I loved the landscape and the colours and can't wait to see more of beautiful Utah.
      Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
      Now let me hop on to your blog and see what light you just caught. 😉

    I´ve been to Utah once long ago. Loved those rocks. You captured nice light and so seem the child do too. 🙂

      Isn't is beautiful. I've seen very little and loved what I did see. Looking forward to seeing more. And I hope I catch some great light there next time too. 😉

      Thank you Monica. 🙂

      I thought I'd play with the pictures a little bit, this week.
      Laurie I love your flowers and the bee and the light in your entry. So, so beautiful. Enjoy the season.

    It is quite amazing what differences light makes on a scene. I do like the great shadows you found.

      I swear!
      And now I look at light like I never did before. I'm so grateful to Monica.
      I'm glad you like the light and the shadows. Thank you Betty. And I love your 'ducklings in the sun.' 🙂

    Never been to Utah…interesting experiment in B/W, somehow I have never been too successful with B/W.

    The kid next to the window evokes so many memories of me traveling in trains as a child…

      I'm sure Desi Traveler will love the landscapes.

      Experiments they are. Since this was my second post on light on those dry landscapes, I thought I'd play with it a little.

      That's my sonny boy. He'd just woken up and was enjoying the early morning sight. What a way to begin a day, right? That long train ride was quite an experience for him.

      I can imagine a young Prasad enjoying some desi landscapes on his many train journeys. If only he'd known he would be a popular travel blogger one day, I'm sure he'd have taken loads of pictures.
      I bet those trips shaped the traveller in him. 🙂

    Pics came out great in b/w, and the effect is dramatic. Loved the other set of pictures too, and such contrast they are the golden vs the black… 🙂

    I'm sure you had a great time there.
