    Returning from business in Scotland and stopped for a quick break, managed to grab a couple of quick shots with the GF1.

    Again lovely in B&W, I feel like I recognise the place in the first shot, I'm sure my parents live not far from there.

    It was a stop just off the M72 heading south from Glasgow.

    Your B&W work is among the very best seen here.

    Thanks Alan for those kind words - I try to produce images that capture the mood in a timeless fashion.

    Well...you do that very well! When I see your name pop up in the posts I always check your photos out...I really like your work!! I used to work in black & white---back in the day of developing my own film and enlarging in a darkroom. I should give it a try again....you inspire me!!

    Thanks

    Thank you for those kind words.

    Now I am able to shoot my images purely for pleasure and no longer as a living and find I enjoy it even more.

    I too cut my teeth in the days of a wet darkroom and find that the skills I learned in those have afforded me an eye to view images and pre-visualise the results in B&W, a real bonus to have that background as it tends to make people shoot with thought rather than blast away and hope the results arrive!

    Like everyone else has said, beautiful photos. Is it always that cloudy in Scotland?

    These are beautiful! Especially like the light through the clouds on the second one.

    Your background does indeed show through in your digital photography.

    Excellent work, both behind the camera and in post.

    Not living in Scotland I cannot comment but due to the fact we live on a small island, we are prone to a lot of fast moving ever changing climatic changes and Scotland having some amazing mountains does tend to produce some wonderful and dramatic skies.

    This to me is where the GF1+20mm and SFX come into their own
