This is a classic example of Mother Nature imitating Ansel Adams, who was, and still is, renown for his stunning black and white photos of Mother Natures handy work. In this case photographer John Kerr captured a picture of a view looking south from the Foulweather overlook where a band of storm clouds seem to be defining the black and white nature of an early evening light from a setting sun. We get the typical Ansel Adams treatment of black and white, from the pure white of the frothy shorebreak of he waves to the pitch black color of the shadow side of Otter Rock itself.
But of course, the light grayish-brown hue of the beach gives away the fact that the photo is a color photo with barely noticeable red hues off to the right side of the shot, just floating above the water line. Slight traces of blue hues also appear off Devil’s Punchbowl.
Nicely done John! Feel free to contribute often to the visual richness of what we share here on News Lincoln County.
