It’s been a while since we’ve shot some black and white. I love it. You love it. So, let’s do it!

In today’s shot, I’d love to see a nice image, that you could use as a wallpaper/background on your phone or computer’s desktop. I’m looking for a simple horizontal line that is the horizon. Now, you could put the sky up high, and have the majority of the image be a simple foreground. Maybe a local farm’s field. Maybe the ocean.

Or, of course, you could flip that, and have the majority of your image be the sky, leaving the horizon line down low.

Take several shots, experiment! This way, when you’re back on your computer, processing, you have several different shots to choose from.

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″ and “2009challenge229“. Also, if you haven’t already, join thePhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.

About Steve Troletti

I’m a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy.

Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments.

Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
