Back to my Roots

By sut68      
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.

Highly Commended Photos are given by the team to photos that were good but not quite an editors' choice award. Readers' Choice Awards are given to photos that get over 30 votes

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.
