This is what remains of the rail viaduct that formed part of the Monmouth to Chepstow railway. The line used to follow the river Wye and take in Tintern with the famous abbey.
Must've been bl**dy fantastic on a summer's day!

OK I'm not over-fond of titles on photographs (a flaw in my personality!) but this is a superb mono image Dave.
It has one failing though - I didn't take itSad

This is fantastic.

I've now made my decision on going medium format, the quality looks amazing. long exposure to get the clouds like that?

Scott.

Hi Scott,
Thanks for bigging this up. I think the exposure time would have been around the half second mark as I had a polariser fitted.
I showed this to a very well known landscape photographer and he thought that it was a multiple exposure because of the apparent ghosting in the highest clouds but it's an old fashioned spot metered exposure onto slide film. And then digitally converted to black and white of course.
What I miss most about the 6x7 format is the climb-in-and-walk-about feeling of the large viewfinder.
Cheers,
Dave

No problem Scott. That's a brave move to make - going to MF from digital. Much as I miss the feel and process of shooting with the Mamiya, I couldn't go back now.
Unless of course you're going for a Hassleblad/Phase One combo, in which case I'll be up for a go as soon as it arrives!
All the best,
Dave
