Beautiful Black and White Nature Photography

By / Jan 25, 2010 / Inspiration

The beauty of nature can be very inspiring. So in this article we are showcasing examples of black and white nature photography. Without color, photographers must put more emphasis on lighting, composition, and context. Combined with this and the fact that there are no man-made objects, these photographs are an excellent source of inspiration and can help us see the beauty of God’s creation that we sometimes take for granted.

Be sure and click on the images to view larger versions and learn more about each photograph and the talented artists behind the camera.

    Black and white just suites the Zebra doesn’t it. The desert scene seems to be just that more barren and scary and lonely in B&W

    Beautiful, stunning, amazing – i am running out of adjectives to describe these compositions. The photo of the trees on a narrow mountain path is incredible….and so is the wildebeest braving the wind in the African savanna. Unvelievable!

    and the droplets of dew on the leaves make my heart skip a beat! and the shafts of light entering the deep cavern – oh! i don’t have enough words to express what I feel.

    These are truly stunning photographs. Many of these would work well with a site with strong typography, particularly minimalist designs with strong, serif fonts I feel.
