Monoglut

11th April 2015
Just looking at my homepage and it seems to be dominated by monochromes at the moment!

I tend to find that when colour doesn't add to a composition then dropping it completely leads to a stronger image. There have been a few such photographs this last week with the added benefit of enhanced character from the monochrome process.



This shot had a slight blue tint to enhance the cold feel of the scene and give it that "mists of time" feel. I love these uncelebrated structures which, I am sure, someday will be archaeological marvels!



Slightly further back in time to the early part of the 18th century there is Saltom Pit - a site I had never previously visited, but a new find that I am going to be back to again and again. It is like a slice of Cornwall in Cumbria!



Finally we pop back to the medieval period with the ancient remains of and Abbey, in use for 400 years, and abandoned for almost 500. It is in a sorry state, but remains a highly interesting place to visit.

Next week we get back into the usual routine and I am looking forward to seeing where I wind up, getting back into a training regime and trying to work out what we are going to do about the future.
