Hopefully being brave converting this to monochrome which works best for me . Mountain View farm is an isolated farm abandoned sometime in the 1950's I think. It lies close to Backside Beck which joins The River Rawthey near to Cautley famous for it's Spout which is a main feature of the Howgills . As recenly as 1998 it was used in a fairly low budget film where interior shots of the kitchen were used . Now just used for grazing a few sheep and storage of winter fodder etc. Many thanks for recent clicks and comments.All very much appreciated ....Phil

The B and W conversion works for me too, Phil: and I like the composition too.
For some reason the first thoughts that came to mind when viewed the image initially was that is how the moors seem to be depicted in Wuthering Heights. A flight of fancy I suppose!

A super and very dramatic mono, Phil, great composition and capture Smile
Thanks for your vote & comments on my 'Washday!' upload - no, I haven't visited Torcello, but I see it's just north of Burano, so may try to make it there next time I go to Venice Wink
Just booked a few days stay in Whitby in June, from Monday 11th to Friday 15th, so if you happen to be in the area, could meet up! Grin

A good image Phil, a good composition and well suited to the converstion But IMHO, it looks just a little flat, not sure how to resolve that, but I'm sure someone here will be able to advise. Lovely nonetheless

The curving fence and hill lines. The perfect composition. The stark suggestion of 'dirt farm'. The cloud and general contrast suggests an orange filter if it were a B&W. Excellent.
