That means a lot! You saw the scene so you know it isn't St. Clement's best face, but what can I say, it's Me and How I See.

Thanks Frank. My usual teaspoon of glow effect, I often like what it does to clutter.

Re: Eilean Glas Lighthouse

Minnie, I would have loved to have taken you to this lighthouse, this was my first time there. It is situated at the far tip of Scalpay, the walk is quite long and steep and would have taken the best part of a day to complete. Our time together was sadly far too brief to do justice to the Hebrides ...

St. Clements Kirk

My own cluttered rendition of a beautiful old church from around 1500, it yields a nice, much simpler and more classic composition from other angles but everyone here is probably acquainted with my affection for clutter.

All comments welcome, or edits.

Re: Eilean Glas Lighthouse

Another gorgeous shot, Graham. I'm jealous, you remember how hard we chased a lighthouse to no avail!

Wonderful image in exquisite detail and perfect composition. This one really just jumps off the screen.

Thank you Frank, that's encouraging! I'm more about color in landscapes but always willing to try something if color is lacking.

Re: Collector of Fine Art BW Images

I enjoy seeing your additions to this thread, be they current or be they archival. The postcard idea was a creative one from another era, but yes, fun to see. How we've changed in the ways we share!

Re: Sunflower Triptych

Lovely sunflowers, Chuck. If I had to pick a fave, it would be the middle one, with her slightly downcast face and just the right amount of contextual background to suit my personal taste. I agree that it is hard to walk by a flower, no matter how small or humble, without taking note, and if the cam...

Re: The Wizard of the Stones

I like the subject matter and think it would work really well as a B&W image. Hi Don! It is great to see you here, welcome to our little small-town forum, and I look forward to seeing your amazing creations here. Having watched Graham make this image (and its companions) I was curious to see wh...

Re: The Bus Stop at Baigh Na Hearadh

Out in the barren landscape of the backroads on the Hebrides, there are bus stops, postal boxes and phone booths that turn up in incongruous locations. This one has been "made homey". I didn't know whether it was scenery or architecture so I put it in B&W. Choices, choices... All sugg...
