The Bridestones

By iangilmour    
Many thanks to those who have voted, commented and awarded my last series of photos. It has spurred me on to continue with them.
A break from my usual macro work now. I often go walking on 'the tops' around the Calder Valley and have often visited the Bridestones. I have taken many shots in colour but none of them seem to do them justice. I always convert them to mono as with this one. Thanks for looking.

Mono definitely does them justice, nice tones and moody sky.

What fascinating formations. The name interests me...I wonder how they came by that name.

Apparently these stones were used as a sacred site going back to the iron age. Later couples were married there and still marry there today. The stone that looks like an upturned bottle is called The Great Bridestone and next to it is The Groom.
You are quite right Monochrome suits this image it brings out the strength and mystery in the stones

Fascinating how nature shapes and sculpts these rocks during the course of thousands of years.
Your choice of toning/conversion very complementary.
