"Oak Alley Plantation"

Thank you all for voting in the Pentax Forums March 2023 "Landscape in Monochrome - March 2023" contest, and a special thank you to those who voted for my photo in the contest. There were so many great photo entries, and it was an honor just making it to the final 15. The comments I received were very kind and welcoming.

I am an avid photographer and have been taking photos since 1970. My passion is taking landscape and wildlife photos and, every so often, I will convert a photo into black and white to suit my taste. This was the case here. I took this photo while on a short vacation in New Orleans, LA during Mardi Gras week. I feel lucky that there were no people in the frame when I was standing in this location, and I could see how the light filtered through the trees. This is now one of my favorite photos and is the “Home” page photo on my web site which can be found at
