Stairway to Chapter House, Wells Cathedral

The wearing down of the stone steps by so many feet over so many years, the religious connotations of ascending towards the light….

colour or black and white, St Michael's Mount

Monochrome or Colour – St Michael’s Mount

The mount has been the subject of myth and legend for centuries. Some of these stories, recorded as far back as 495AD. I do like the blue sky but I think there is a heightened sense of drama with the monochrome. Only minor adjustments were made to contrast values.

Stonehenge vertical format

Stonehenge in black and white

All photos were taken handheld with wider focal lengths, between 16mm and 50mm, on a full frame 35mm camera. Whilst the images work reasonably in colour, the location and subject matter lends itself well to monochrome.

Mausoleum of General San Martín.

Cathedral in monochrome, Buenos Aires.

Buenos Aires Metropolitan Cathedral interior images lend themselves well to black and white.

Midway Atoll, discarded mask

An experiment in colours and textures! ….like?…dislike?…wondering what’s the point?

Erosion and dead trees, Waimea Canyon, Kaua’i.

Waimea Canyon, Kaua’i. Colour and black and white images both work well, and Adobe’s Lightroom offers some interesting image toning options
