2016-02-19 monochrome sunset

Thanks for all the encouragements and comments, concerning yesterdays low in respect of "flashofred" February. Today was better. It is easier if you leave the job before sunset and have a few minutes for yourself. It was cold and gray today, but just before sunset the sky tore open at the right place for a short period of time. So today, some outdoor light and shadow.

Addendum 20.02.16, a colour version as wished from Chantal @shepherdmanswife: http://365project.org/mona65/2015-plan-b-alb/2016-02-19
This is great! I like the silhouettes of the trees and the people, and of course the lighting!

This gleams and glows and is a fabulous picture in all ways, fav! I don't do the flash of red February thing, as I could never commit to a while month of b&w.
