Kings Canyon (Pt. 2)

Happy Thanksgiving, dear readers! I'm thankful for reveling in the great outdoors, and nature's endless beauty. To celebrate I thought I'd post my second set from Kings Canyon National Park. Last week I posted a Kings Canyon (Pt. 1), a color series. But, as I mentioned in that post, I've been thinking a lot about texture lately, and sometimes that's best communicated in black and white. Occasionally the green of the trees, and the blue of the sky distracts from the way a canyon can dramatically light a mountain range at sunset. And of course, the Sierras in B&W is always a lovely homage to my favorite photographer, Ansel Adams.
