A fascinating bit of coastline geologically judging by your image, working well in B and W with a good range of tones and contrast: your small aperture and wide angle setting has given excellent detail in all areas, and provided good f/g interest.

Hi Al
Shutter speed just right to add a bit of movement to the clouds, good exposure and looks good in mono.

Regards

Trev.

Think you got a better sky than I did!

Been thinking about this shot all day, Al, and decided it needed a gold star!
Amazing coincidence we both managed to upload such similar compositions so close to each other time-wise!

All the best!

Bill
