New Gower Mono Collection

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and when Willow was sick last week I couldn’t go out so had time to make a small collection of black and white photos of Gower.

As it turned out, it wasn’t any good so I walked around Pobbles Bay and up onto the cliffs. There wasn’t any cloud and the sunrise wasn’t great so I’ve tried this unusual view as black and white. I’m trying to improve my black and white, so here you go:
