Chuffing ‘eck!

I was looking through some older photos tonight and I saw this one, taken in the summer of 2009 while walking to the summit of Snowdon. I love the lines of the track every time I open the image so I thought it was worthy of sharing.

The original image was in colour but I thought the subject would suit a bit of the gritty mono treatment.

    Monochrome works really well for this.

    Hi Steve! Yes, I agree with Gary, mono is definitely the medium for this. I can understand why it hits you every time you see it. The sinuous railway line clinging to the steep hillside is great – and I also like the similarity in angles between the barren, stoney hillside and the white steam – super picture! Adrian

      Thanks Adrian, maybe I’ll check out some more older photos to see what can be converted.

        Yes, you definitely should – I’m a little surprised that I seem to be the only one in the blogs I follow who posts 10+ years old photos – maybe that’s because I’m an oldie! Go to it, man! A

    Super! Love the composition and the grittiness of the monochrome conversion. Reminds me of an old BFI movie still!

    You always told me you were too young to remember the age of steam! Great photo.

    Stunning shot! Very nicely executed and the mono conversion works wonders in this case. It definitely adds to the whole scene 🙂
