Taken in late October 2006 on a mostly cold and wet weekend. The ovecast sky broke up eventually on the Sunday.
This was taken about a mile north of Harlech, North Wales, looking north at the ramparts of Snowdonia national park.
The white farmhouse really makes this image for me and gives a sense of the immensity of this landscape (although the 600 px limit makes it a bit difficult to see - I really must join e2 sometime!), with the landscape utterly dwarfed by this gigantic cloud: kind of humbling, really.

B&W conversion was done in layer sets, each comprising two H&S adjustment layers and a colour balance adjustment layer. One set for sky, one for land.
I followed this with three curves adjustment layers masked respectively for sky, middle distance and foreground followed by a D&B layer for final local contrast tweaks.

Hope you like it.
Thanks for stopping by.

Lovely mono treatment and a superb, dramatic sky.

Great image.Hope you have an A3 [or bigger] print of this on your wall as it deserves to be seen big!.I personally would crop a wee bit off the base but it is a very fine picture as is.

John.
