Testing some Black and White

I have this love hate relationship with black and white photography. I seem to go through these phases where I need to process everything in black and white, and then I’ll go through phases where I don’t even want to go near the stuff! I came across this root structure in Algonquin back in the spring, the color version didn’t look so great because the roots blended into the rocks to much. The black and white is OK in my opinion but still there is something missing from this picture and I don’t know what it is! I have a lot to learn before I master black and white, but for now I’m in a phase where I like to play with it!
