A couple of B&W landscapes from me. Seems that winter is an especially good time for black and white, when colour is often a distraction, rather than a feature. A drizzly morning but with great skies. I used a rocket blower to clear the front of the lens of rain drops, rather than a cloth, after hearing about this tip recently. Very effective!

Lovely shots, Andy. I like the second one most. Looks like the path
leading home for the holidays. All I can imagine is a small cottage
on the other end, with warm fire place and filled with holiday cheer.
Don't ask me why but that the emotion it evoked. :D

Great shots from Andy. My eye is drawn especially to the first one, because of tree. Also, interesting to see your take with B&w landscape. Very nice.

Birma

The mono landscapes are great. I particularly enjoy looking at the first one. I keep coming back to look at it.
Winter it may be but these are such serene images of beautiful English countryside.

Thanks Ossie :)

I think that winter especially suits Black and White - there isn't much colour, but the light and shapes, especially of the trees, are fabulous.
