Monochrome Photography

black-and-white-down-the-roadI took this monochrome photo today, as we drove back to our camp ground. We are spending a few days in southern Utah, RVing in our 5th Wheel trailer. While studying my digital camera and the manual, I learned how to photograph in monochrome and  decided that today I would use this setting for all photos.
