Monochrome Madness 2-40

this is my entry for Leanne Coles Monochrome Madness.  Visit her blog for all the great submissions every week.

the treeless spaces on the Orkney Islands (at Skaill House)  have a lonely beauty against clouds that appear to be rushing out on the sky’s tide.

…and I’ve been dreaming a lot lately so I include this in my monochrome collection with a quote from Rumi

“This place is just a dream. When dawn arrives you laugh at what you thought was your grief”

woodland dream
the woods were meant for the hunters of dreams

    Love the color tones you’ve used in this. You say “… windows will sometimes degrade the colour of an image….” And here I thought it was just me. I would work on an image and get it to where I really like it only to post and go “meh”!
