Old Man of Storr

By Sue_R  
Thought I'd take a break from the photos from our last trip to Skye and go back to one that I took when we visited the Old Man of Storr on Skye back in January of this year. This image was taken as the snow storm, which had been right over us for a while, started to move off into the distance. The colour version of this one is here if you're interested.

I've been meaning to try this one as a mono ever since, but hadn't got around to it until now. I think it works. Hope you agree.

Looks like something out of this world Sue, I think mono worked better than the colour version.

Thanks Bill. You suggested turning this one into a mono at the time. I just didn't get around to doing it until now.

Love the atmosphere that the Mono gives this smashing image Sue. Wonderfully moody, and great to view.

I agree, the mono works well here - very foreboding!

Having looked at the colour version, Sue, I think this B and W conversion carries even more dramatic impact.

Yes, I remember the colour version, Sue, and looking at it again and comparing the two, this mono version does work very well - it looks even more moody and dramatic Wink

I do like the mono for its mood and drama but I wouldn't be able to choose between the 2, they're both excellent shots.

I like the mono version, it certainly has a brooding menace about it.
