Mono at its best Dougie.Whilst it is a lot easier to produce mono now with digital media it is by no means easy to produce a good one but you have managed.Starting with the subject, the weather conditions and of course your skill at the taking stage and post processing. A one to be proud of Dougie and I do hope it takes pride of place. This is another which would get my award if I knew how to do it. Sorry.

A beauty, Dougie. It is full of the other kind of colour, the kind sometimes called character; it doesn't need the polychromatic kind to make it dramatic.
