Helmand Province, Afghanistan From Above

Associated Press photojournalist Kevin Frayer recently sent out a group of stark black-and-white aerial images that show the rugged, inhospitable terrain of the province. Frayer made the images while flying in a medevac helicopter from the U.S. Army’s Task Force Shadow “Dust Off”, Charlie Company 1-214 Aviation Regiment.

Black and Whites are amazing when done well. It’s all in the developing. Some pictures take several tries to get just the right contrast. It’s an art within an art not a one hour photo kind of thing.
