    Great picture Andrew, and I like the conversion. Haydn, I understand why you're proud of this picture. It's great too.

    I couldn't post more than a few pictures lately, mainly because the weather has been so bad that's it was even difficult to go out for a short walk. In my region, we had up to 2.5 times the average amount of rain in July. In fact, the only thing that avoided terrible floods in the Alps was that it was cold enough for a lot of this rain to fall as snow on the top of the mountains.
    Fortunately, we had a little break on the national Day, the 1st of August, with a somewhat clear weather. Well, at least it didn't rain for most of the day. I took advantage of this to go for a hike to see one of the famous "cabanes" (little cabins in the mountains for alpinists and climbers to spend the night before going higher the next day) in Switzerland, the "cabane d'Orny". Being usually built in very spectacular places, these cabins have become a goal on their own for a lot of less skilled people like me. For most of the day we were literally covered in fog, but we had a few moments when we could see a bit farther.
    This mountain, the "Petit clocher du Portalet", is known as a little climber's paradise, as you can imagine from the picture. It emerged from the fog for about 2 minutes before disappearing again. I decided to convert the picture to B&W.

    Tounis - Thanks for the effort and for sharing with use. The mist coming off the peak is a great catch and converting to B&W was a good choice.

    Pierre, that is a stunning picture. I think BW conversion is perfect for this one. Glad to hear that you are able to get out and enjoy the sun!

    The color version works nicely too, but I like the black and white.

    I'm primarily going for an abstract and geometric type of effect here -- this is a light fixture from Stronghold Castle in Oregon, IL.

    Dave, that is a great bw conversion. The drops on that leaf really stick out in bw.
