Welcome to the collection of images that actually look better processed as black and white instead of color and because of that you will not find these images available in color versions.
Making a dramatic statement, these prints will fit in very nicely with almost every decorating style. The black frame and white mat, if chosen, are a nice match to this collection.
Picture sizes are: small (6X9—with frame and mat 9X12), medium (8X12—with frame and mat 14X18), and large (12X18—with frame and mat 18X24).
Here is a close-up of the frame, if chosen, used for each of the prints in all of the collections.
No matter the size of the print the frame remains the same 1-1/4 inches profile width but the white mat is 1-1/2 inches for the small size, 2 inches for the medium size and 3 inches for the large size to retain a proper aesthetic proportion.
Smooth Matte Black wood

Every time I see this image I laugh at the bemused look of the middle and right cows. For some reason they look like they're expecting me to give them a sales pitch for encyclopedias.
Taken high in the Rocky Mountains the low angle of the sun and the beautiful mountains in the backdrop give this image extra interest.
Fireworks Over Cripple Creek
This is a favorite of many, although some struggle to understand why on earth I've developed a fireworks image as black and white. Yes, I know, nobody else has given a fireworks display this kind of treatment, at least not since color film has been invented but honestly, this image needed to be black and white—it makes it much more dramatic.
Old Car in Snow
One person's garbage is another person's treasure. At least sometimes it is, like when I came across this old abandoned Chevy I had taken a picture of during the Fall. As I walked past on this day the contrast of car on snow caught my attention and I took this photo with a head-on perspective. I have a color version of this image as well that I like even more but this is one of the few times I listened to others as they were in favor of the black and white version 3:1. It looks great and I'm glad I took the time to set up and capture this image when I saw it out of the corner of my eye.
I love coming across works of art that are out of the ordinary, something that somebody has put a lot of time and effort and creativity into just for the love of it.
Driving the back roads of Clackamah County in Oregon with my brother-in-law we came to a curve in the road and I had to pull over and take this shot. Setting up in the middle of the road while my brother-in-law kept an eye out for cars I was able to snap a series of shots. There is so much going on here that it took some time to figure out how to frame this image.
At first I named this image "Skull Ranch" but ended up settling on the title "Welcome Bigfoot" and you can probably see why if you look close enough.
