I used this subject in the Unusual Angles challenge a while back and thought it might work as a B&W photo as well. You are looking at a 260 foot high mast which is an actual working sundail at one end of a foot bridge crossing the Sacramento River in Redding, CA.
I will post the original picture and a reference picture for you. For this conversion I tried using the B&W conversion tool on Smugmug's website. They host my galleries. I used their B&W edit tool.

I think I would like to see a bit more contrast in the BW version. The color photo is great...again! I was just wondering, does that mast change position to adjust for Daylight Saving Time or do they move the sun?? :?:?

Good question. I don't think they do either, everyone just shows up either 1hr early or 1hr late, depending on whether it's spring or fall.

I definitely like the bw version more. It looks very smooth, and the exact opposite of flat. I'd frame it ;p

Thank you Gerafix, I was thinking that I might do that very thing.
Cheers,
