As I worked on the images taken during our trip to Red Rock l wanted to be sure to have some monochrome shots. While the rock formations, and entire area really, are mostly shades of red and brown the texture is hard. There are no uniform lines here that’s for sure. Not exactly what you want for black and white.
I finally had to limit myself to shading and let the subject work itself out.
Each of these photos is processed a little different since trying to find the best method is an ongoing project . Not sure I have yet but these are a start.
