    Windfarm on The Solway

    Thought I'd live on the edge a bit during my recent break in south west Scotland - thought we'd try something in colour. Can life get any more exciting!?

    As always, C & C welcomed. I think it works better if you view it in the Lightbox (just click on it)

    A really interesting image Donald.

    I like the way the the vertical lines and pattern of horizontal tones complement each other. Its very near to being non-representational, almost an abstract design.

    Color? Color! Donald! How could you! Went over to the 'light' side! Can't be. You are just teasing, right? That must be it, just teasing. After all, you ARE going to convert this to B&W! Aren't you? ?? ???

    Holding to my self-imposed rule to shoot a photograph in order to make either a B & W or a colour image and never change my mind at the post-processing stage, I wouldn't convert this one to B & W. It was shot to be colour. So it can only ever be in colour.

    However, I did shoot another one to be B & W and have been working on it today, along with some others from this holiday/vacation.

    Spoken like a true gentleman, Donald. This one is, like all of your postings, very well done. I'm looking forward to seeing your B&W version as well.

    I like the groupings of near and far vertical lines.

    Brilliant idea just struck me - someone shoot an image of an off shore windfarm in the background with a similar set of kiddies 'windmills on sticks' on the beach in the foreground.
