The Galapagos Islands in Black and White

The Galapagos Islands are such a colourful place. Thus, what I’m about to present to you is almost a crime. I am about to show you the Galapagos Islands in black and white. Sure, there are some photos where I’ve left some selected colour in the image, but for the most part these were all processed to be desaturated of their wonderful colours. I feel that it gives the images, and really the islands in general, a completely different feel than what you may be used to seeing.

As is generally the case when I go to photograph somewhere that has already been shot to death I attempt to find completely different angles, lights, and moods that haven’t been seen before. This series of black and white images was a part of that process. I hope you enjoy them.
