This small but wonderful waterfall is tucked away near Wooler in Northumberland. I always saw this image as a monochrome, but the choice of square format was a surprise to me. I envisaged that the falling water would lend itself to a portrait format, but when I was composing the image I felt that the falling water lit from above added some mystery to it when the source was not visible.
My home town of Saltburn. The Pier dates back 150 years, although it is now somewhat shorter than the original and has undergone several restorations in its history, it is nonetheless an impressive feature on our Northern Coast
Having started my photography journey in the days of film and dark rooms, when monochrome images were the order of the day, I still sometimes see an image as monochrome. This decision is most often made at the time of making the image.
