Years and years ago, when I first started making images I used to shoot, develop and print all my own mono shots in a traditional darkroom.

Every now and again it's good to re-visit this medium albeit in the more instant modern digital era.

Very atmospheric. Like a pirates cove in stormy weather. Beautiful.

Classic scene with added moodiness in mono, it's a cracking conversion. I really like the central high contrast.

Simply gorgeous, Paul. The B&W treatment really helps to emphasise the primeval qualities of this wonderful landscape.
