Hi

This is a rework of an image taken earlier this year, and thought it looked quite good as a mono. The conditions have to be good at Heswall shore to enable you to stand on the mud and the weather needs to have been warm and dry, I guess I was lucky that night Smile

Please view large if you have the chance.

Thanks for looking
Mark

Those shapes and lines from the dried mud look great, nicely emphasised by the toning too! Smile

Wonderful mono Mark, really like this. The textures in and around the cracked mud are just great. A moody sky tops the image off.
