This is a great image Jim ! Looks good in mono - the grass and clouds are very effectively placing the focus on the towerSmile

A wonderful image Jim, and mono suits it very well. The grasses and tower have a softness, yet have not lost clarity ... Carol

I never thought of high key mono other than in portraits before.
Great image of the Tower and a wonderful sky with good contrasts.
The grasses tell their story blowing in the wind.
I've forgotten where the Tower is situated Jim?
