Black & White Challenge, Day 1

I was nominated for this challenge by Peter Bowers, a talented fine art photographer who creates sublime art; his subjects often are landscapes in his home province of Ontario. 

This exercise is going to be a creative and technical challenge for me as I usually think, see, compose, and process in colour. I am digging deep, reading and learning, and making surprising and satisfying discoveries as I review and critically evaluate my Lightroom catalogue of more than 5000 images (99% in colour) to select which images might tell a more interesting story in monochrome.

Here is my first submission:
