In the article A Midwinter's Day at Smith Rock
I wrote about my January 2013 excursion to Oregon's breath-taking Smith Rock State Park.
Even though it is a small area, it is jam-packed with astonishing beauty! After sorting through more than 500 photos, I ended up processing 119 color shots for the companion Smith Rock 2013
But not all of the photos were presentable in color — and some photos were beautiful, in different ways, in both color and in monochrome. That's why I decided to make this special black and white album of my Smith Rock photos. It contains 13 pictures which are not included in the color album, plus 48 black and white versions of photos which are in the color album.
Don't let the boring name of Smith Rock fool you! This is one place you will definitely want to visit if you are in the neighborhood, as you will see for yourself when you take a virtual tour of the park via the images I'm presenting here.
