Looks wonderfully luminous with your mono treatment, Frank.

Another one that's just great in B&W! A favorite spot!

They used the tower to look out for floods, but it fell into disuse there in Arizona. Makes another excellent picture, though.
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha, thanks, Louis.
You have made a great image of it in b&w Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks,Janet, pleased you think so.
Not quite what one would expect to see in a barren area I guess.
Frank L Croston.: Not really, Brian.
The b/w works very well... what a great structure...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Larry, yes it is.
I recall seeing this before. Works well in b&W Frank
Frank L Croston.: I think we have both posted pic's of it before, Bill, thank you.
Super crisp textures
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin.
Excellent in black and white, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Tom.

Somehow, B&W seems to suit this even better than colour. Did Ansel Adams capture such view, i wonder?
Frank L Croston.: I liked it better in b/w, I have never seen one by Mr Adams of this place, Alan, but then I don't recall any of his of the Grand canyon in general...
