The crossing of ways

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

As Winter takes hold of this spot just to the north of Pendle hill one can see and sometimes understand the real beauty of black and white. Compared to this the coloured version is just a normal snapshot. Enjoy! Herb

ps A later sister summer picture to this: Gateway of dreams may be of interest too.

Great B&W Herb,
I agree with you that monochrome photos are often more expressive than those colorful.

Nice to see you enjoying these mono landscapes Paolo. I must do some more! This is a couple of years old now but as you will no doubt know; we need inspiration!

L85 Yes, you're quite right. Black & white brings the essence of the scene, and you can add some contrast to get more drama.

Best wishes, Vladimir
