This is Silverado Creek. It may not look like much to those of you from rainier climes, but the fact that it has any water at all is a little unusual. The original of this picture has plenty of lovely greenery, but I decided it looked better as a contrasty black-and-white photo instead. I converted the sky and the ground to black-and-white separately, using different filter settings, and then merged them back together. It has a nice Old West feel to it that I like a lot.
