A slightly different view point to my last one of this amazing rock formation in Joshua Tree National Park.

Converted to mono so is probably even less appealing than the previous colour version but I like it Smile

Many thanks for the comments and votes on the previous one especially for the 'animal suggestions' and once again for taking the time to look at this one.

The rock in Joshua tree is really wonderful. Looks good in mono, but I did prefer the colour............Sandy

Fine treatment Gill but for me it has to be the colour. Hope you dont mind.

Thanks Ron ..... of course not! we all have our preferences and I must admit mine is usually colour but I love having a go at trying to produce a reasonable conversion Smile
