Natural landscapes: making the best of ‘dirty’ weather
PATTERNS IN THE ROCKS, GIANT’S CAUSEWAY, NORTHERN IRELAND
My wife and I had just a few hours at this renowned tourist attraction (and UNESCO World Heritage site) on Ireland’s northern coast. Unfortunately, the weather for that entire visit was what the Irish call ‘dirty’ – alternating between light and heavy rain.
So I had to improvise and look for compositions beyond the standard landscape views. This was one of them, converted to black and white to remove what little colour was in the scene and help you concentrate on the subtle curve of the interlocking Basalt columns from bottom right to the distant left.

You were right to convert this to B&W, Frank – it’s all about the tonal range. A good result, I’d say.
