Winter scenes often lends themselves to black and white photography because of the natural contrast provided between white snow and dark objects.

I didn’t make these image in black and white originally, but converted them in Photoshop.

All were made from the dome car of a Cuyahoga Valley Valley Scenic Railroad train during a February trip in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

It was snowing when the train left Akron and some of that snow stuck to the windows. Hence the spots that you see in the images.

The top image was made in Brecksville and features the Cuyahoga River and the Ohio Route 82 bridge over the Cuyahoga River.

The middle image shows a house along the Cuyahoga in Peninsula, Ohio. The bottom image portrays a lock on the Ohio & Erie Canal known as Deep Lock. The bridge in the latter image spans the canal.
