Broadway Tower, Gloucestershire

By AnnJ
This is the second of the three entries I put into our Camera Club Monochrome competition. I handed them in last night so too late to do anything about them now!

I spoke too soon about my back being better! While sitting at the computer and printing the said mono prints I leant down to pick up an ink cartridge which had fallen on the floor....and oh no, pain again! We press on though, in hope!

Broadway Tower was used as a look out tower and the underground nuclear bunker is the small "hill" seen in front of it. Both are open to the public.

Am still getting used to my new camera, a Canon 5D Mk111, but loving it.

It's like a fairytale castle, framed by the trees, and we're on the path to it. Very nice detailed mono.

I like the symmetry that you have achieved her from a well considered viewpoint: we visited Broadway in the late 1990's when staying in nearby Blockley but I never managed to visit this iconic building.

Beautiful framing Ann. Probably a few pixels for the pixels would have done - judges seem to comment
if we do anything to distract.
Congratulations on the new camera - wow!
I see you do your own mono printing too - what printer do you use?
I have to send my monos away.
Good lead in in this which helps make us stand back to view the Tower.
Good luck in the competition.
