    Stunning in B&W as well Mark. I wrote Saturday morning off as too overcast. So, you snooze you loose. Congrats on an awesome Image.

  • Cheers Ian, I would have too but I had to go the northern beaches to pick up my daugther. It was certainly worth the effort.

    Great processing and a beautiful capture, it’s quite a different expression than the colored version you published previously.

  • Thanks Steen, totally agree it does have a different feel
