The Tower and the Moon in Black & White

In my other post, The Tower and the Moon at Lake Yosemite, I really liked the lighting on the tower, but wish the moon was higher. On this version, I liked the higher placement of the moon, but by that time, the lighting wasn’t as strong. I thought a black and white conversion would give it a cold, creepy look.
