For my mid year I decided to photograph my hike through Abrams Rock. It was warm that day, at least by New England standards, and it was also the perfect weather for photographing in the woods with light coming through the trees and hitting the trail giving a sense of time in the photos as well. I chose to convert my photos to black and white because I've always liked how black and white photos look and they also make you almost guess what the photos would look like if they were in color. I was inspired by the photographer Ansel Adams who photographed the American west and his photos were all in black and white as well. This is also as close as I will get to photographing the Rockies in Colorado, the Apennine Mountains in Italy, and the Southern Alps in New Zealand.
