Yes, it does look better in colour, but I thought you might find this one more interesting!
Nine Stones Close is the small neolithic stone circle at the back of Cratcliffe Tor. I prefer the alternative name of 'The Grey Ladies', because there are only four stones!
Some fast running helped me to line it up with the rainbow. Cropped and converted to black and white in Lightroom, some minor levels adjustment just to make the tree and ground stand out, but no major post processing.
Although b&w is obviously a perverse misrepresentation of reality, I have no ethical problems with its use for artistic purposes ;p

I really like this Dan, any chance of putting the original `colour` photo up, just to compare like :)

Nice, Dan. Running seems the order of the day at the moment, the light changes so quickly with the wind and cloud!
