I saw a lot of weather during my two hours at Bude's Sea Pool. I thought this shot would make a decent mono.

Another gong here Derek... Dark and moody sky, and a sea just waiting to consume the viewer. Top shot!

Great decision, that white moving water is magnificent adding emphasis and drama to the central subject. I'd still love to see a cool colour version just to see what it looked like but I suspect mono was the better choice here.
