I find myself drawn to this mysterious ancient standing stone situated near the Sarn Helen Roman road near where I live in the Brecon Beacons quite frequently throughout the year. Thought a mono image may give it the atmosphere I think it deserves.

Many thanks for looking

magic, yes, and mono suggests a sort of nether world atmosphere-- a bit spooky, too!

I'm surprised it ain't covered with graffitti...

Cracking mono and a lovely sky too. Oli likes it a lot (and says Hi!)

This is the sort of image that really plays to the strength of B&W. Great atmosphere, drama and so much impact. Brilliantly done Mari.
Shortlisted!
