Awesome monochrome Elaine. I used to print my b & w prints years ago and now I have discovered digital I'd like to try and get back into it. Do you use a special software for your monochromes?

@rick: Hi Rick, I use Nik Silver Efex Pro. I have been really happy with it. They have a 15 day free trial.

The time was filled. No one will no longer need it. It is often the fate of the old.

How strange, almost surreal to see such things in the middle of nowhere. Great spot indeed. Mono was a clever choice Elaine.
Thanks dear, for all your sweet coms. ;-)
