I’ve been going through some of my images and see that even though there was more color than you would expect, the B & W conversion makes for a pretty dramatic shot. Take the blue out of the shot and what you have left is basically white ice. Yes, there is a lot of blue in some of it, but in our minds ice we perceive ice as colorless or white. In converting some of these I find them to be softer, more flowing in their nature. I’m really liking the black and white!
