Monochrome Weekend / Snowy Egrets at Bolsa Chica Wetlands Preserve, California USA

Click on photo to enlarge!
I posted this photo in color a few days ago and then converted it to black and white.
These Snowy Egrets were delightful to see at the Bolsa Chica Wetlands Preserve in California USA. just a few days ago.

I love the way the reflection and then the egret and where it is standing work in monochrome. So many layers to this photograph.

Thanks for visiting! Great monochrome picture, but I think I like the color version better ... wish you a great weekend! Irene

I love the tonal qualities in this photo - and the egret
is a great capture amidst this splendour!

This is a great b/w photo. It creates great depth and shadow.

Darryl and Ruth : )

I thought this looked familiar, still beautiful, though to be honest I do prefer the color version of this shot.

The colour version captures the depth of the trees but this emphasises the birds and as someone said has great tonal balance.

A good choice for converting to monochrome, it works well. If I had to choose, though, I'd pick the color version, I like the rich brown tones in the trees.

Between tne two, I would choose the colored version, but both have great angle shots!

Nature is always close to my heart. Black and white or colored - they still give away the same beauty for the viewers to admire.

This looks great in black and white-also in color!

These are beautiful birds!

Pssst.... how much sleep did you get?

I am going to have my coffee and bagel now.

Nice, but I think it's nicer still in colour.
