Blowing snow in Odessa Gorge on November 30, 2010.

I do use Ansel Adams' Zone system. 0 through 9, with almost no pixels in 0 or 9. This was converted from color to b&w in Nik Software's Silver Efex Pro. I plan to do quite a lot of b&w photography this winter, with emphasis on tonal range and interesting light.

So the hazy, low contrast bottom left is from blowing snow? Fascinating capture of nature.

Such drama in this image. The use of b&w works very well here.
