Default really stupid lotr question

I know lightning is going to strike me down for saying this, but I was never a fan of the Lord of the Rings movies, and I have a really odd question which I have never seen addressed anywhere.
I saw the first movie in the theater, and wondered this then. I finally saw the second movie last night, when it premiered on the WB. Why weren't these movies filmed in black-and-white? Why was there so much expense paid to have everyone wear gray clothing, have all the plants be gray colored, and all the sets and "real" stuff (as opposed to special effects) be gray? I think that's part of the reason I never had any desire to go back to see the second and third movies--the truth is, it was sometimes hard to differentiate between the characters and what was going on because so much of it looked alike!
