Pools of light

Another for the Flash of Red February 2018 challenge. Since starting to take black & white shots for the whole of February, I now find that I'm getting quite excited when there's heavy cloud cover!
The clouds always looks so dramatic in B&W, love the lighting on the water :)

I’m still waiting for clouds down here - either been brilliant cold blue sky, or dull grey.

This works really well.

I agree, the clouds are accentuated in b&w. The whole image works very well - I like the silhouetted figures

Looks perfect for walkies, a nice chill in the air and an almost empty beach. How I wish...

Nice capture. It's always easier to make the sky look dramatic in B&W you've done a good job with this one :)

Wow FB - you have this B&W concept mastered. Your series of landscapes/beachscapes is just lovely and it talks to me as Ann described in her intro to this section. :)

And you also have enough light to get marvelous silhouettes.

Ha, that made me laugh but you have been rather blessed with beautiful clouds. Love the shimmering sea and the silhouettes. I hope Tally behaved herself with the other dog :)

Awesome B&W image! Love the clouds!

Love the sunlight shimmering on the water.

You've done well with this one too - perfectly spread out silhouetted subjects giving it depth and interest. B&W is such a different thing to colour, I want to explore it more this year.
