In southern Nevada, our closest escape from the heat is nearby Mount Charleston.  Many photo opportunities exist, especially on the ridges or summits of the peaks.  There a couple spots in the lower portion of the mountain that I love to explore and photograph.  One of them, Fletcher Canyon, has an easy hike and ends in a box canyon.  The walls are mostly white, and captures in b&w are usually the strongest.

This is my addition to the collection of b&w images for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness this week. You can check out other photographers work on her site.
