    I just use color film when needed. I do like the B&W photos posted above though. Inspires me.

    Being an early riser it's easy for me to catch the first light. Although some may not consider these typical sunrise/sunset images they are examples of light situations only available at that time of day.

    It did work but I should have put spaces between them. There are three separate images that can be enlarged by clicking each individually if desired.

    That canyon shot is really gorgeous.

    Thomas,

    Thanks. How do you insert the "click bar to view..."

    I have no idea. It just magically happened that way.

    Don't drag the color along

    So, a couple of weeks ago I camped in a very cold area (-10C plus strong winds), woke up to clear and cold, and hiked my 4x5 to the spot I wanted to capture a particular mountain and frozen water scene. This wasn't a sunrise, but might as well have been. Point is, I saw it in B&W, wanted it in B&W, shot it in B&W.

    But, I also had some Velvia loaded up, in my pack. So I took a shot with Velvia too, while everything was still locked down and ready. Why not?

    Developed the B&W, sent the Velvia to my local commercial processor. As soon as I had a dry negative, I spent hours and hours over 3 days perfecting my B&W vision. Finally got it right. (I'm on an assignment in China, don't have my darkroom, so I won't discuss how I perfected it, which is beside the point.) I did nothing but scan the Velvia. Nothing. To me it was just a snapshot. Moved me not one inch.

    Showed the B&W to my wife. She said she liked it. Made me feel pretty good. (Got a bunch of compliments from others that saw it too. Lots of ooo's and ah's.) Then I showed my wife the Velvia shot. She said "I like this one better." Grrrrrrr...

    I'm not even showing anyone else the color shot. And that's the last time I'll show anybody a color version of a B&W vision...

    If the O.P's "vision" only sees sunrises and sunsets in terms of colour and making chocolate box images of it, and can't "see" it in monochrome, however simplistic my answer may seem on the face of it, what other practical options are they ?

    Great story chuck94022!

    This is exactly what I am worried about.

    Jeff,

    Beautiful shots.

    Reminds me of a set of B & W prints I made of some waterfalls in Wales one summer. I showed my Sister:

    "Oh, what nice scenery. It wouldn't it have looked lovely in colour!"
