As a teenager, I was inspired by Ansel Adams' iconic black and white photographs of the American West. His work planted the seeds which have grown into a life-long love of photography. While the majority of my current images are in color, certain subjects and weather conditions seem to pull me in a monochromatic direction. Between December 2017 and April 2018, some of these situations presented themselves. I photographed our beautiful and historic Bucks County, Pennsylvania in falling snow, bitter cold (in which the Delaware River was frozen), and dense morning fog. What follows are a series of Ansel Adams-inspired images taken during the past few months.
