Monochrome Madness: Week 42

This week my monochrome image came from Fingal Head. It was a very overcast day with a strong wind blowing and rain threatening. I managed, with help from a friend to get out to the edge of the rocks for my photo of Fingal causeway which is a mini Giants causeway.ย  This is no easy feat as I am scared of heights but it was worth it.ย  Please forgive the sea spray on the lens it was unavoidable.

I liked the way the sea was swirling angrily and the clouds overhead were ominous, it created an angry photo which I thought was best pictured in black and white.


For more wonderful black and white images please go to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness post here.
