"The Luss Hills in Winter".........(1)

By RonnieAG
An image from March 2010 but converted to B and W..........the view is across Loch Lomond from Craigie Fort to the hills behind Luss on the western shore.......the main island in the scene is Inchfad and the conical hill to the left is Beinn Eich.

My thanks to all who commented on and made useful suggestions regarding An Autumnal Study.

The mono does emphasise the snow and the reflections. An excellent conversion.
Lovely monochrome conversion Ronnie, B&W always suits snow scenes. Seems to suit the images so well.

A stunner, Ronnie, well suited to mono, and you have done a wonderful conversion here. I always enjoy reflections with an island because it teases the eyes and brain, there being two lots of reflections overlapping.
