Terrific shot of those lovely Hills Bill. Nice conversion, still can't convince Vintage ther is some merit in B&W.

Belated New Year greetings, my computer has been playing up. Catching up with everyone over the next few days, post tomorrow if all goes well.
Bill Phillips: Good to have you back...I think vintage is getting there with b&w grin

Great veiw Bill
Bill Phillips: I must get up there soon for some winter pictures!
bello!
Bill Phillips: grazie mille
No apologies needed with a view like this. Something odd has happened with my monitor as the photo appears to be in b&w wink
Bill Phillips: There clearly is...it is supposed to be a touch of sepia! tongue

I'm liking them too Bill even though I've nevr been. Like the use of the tree to give depth, good shot.
Bill Phillips: I would be delighted to welcome you there Mike.
Looks good in monotone ...makes me focus nicely. richard
Bill Phillips: Cheers Richard.
Lovely picture Bill. Is the place that grey, even in winter? It looks positively miserable. Show us the colour version, please.
Bill Phillips: You don't seem to be a monochrome fan Sheila. Believe me it can look pretty bleak up there, which is part of the appeal, the different moods and feel to the place.

But we like, too, but I would like the view more pictured in colours, but I can imagine them: some green, some yellow, some brown, some shades of blue, some grey...- oh, I'm longing for the twiddled pics- in these white cold days, beautiful though, we need some warm colours!
Bill Phillips: I'm in mono mode at the moment Philine...but there will be lots of colour later in the monthsmile

Some of the best of the world's photographers return to the same subject time and time again, so you're in good company! It's a fine view with a good range of tones - I like the black punctuation marks made by the conifers.

Bill Phillips: I don't think I will ever run out of pictures of the Clent Hills, I have barely scratched the surface yet!
Your best picture yet of them too
Bill Phillips: Thanks Chris. I'm chuffed!
Oh no no no no no, Bill. This is far too good.
Bill Phillips: Sorry your most Exalted Baronship

Excellent conversion. I must get to come and eat one of them bacon things (thanks for the recipe the other day)
Bill Phillips: It would be my pleasure to welcome you Louis!
The sepia tones does it for me...
Bill Phillips: Thanks Chantal. I thought this one leant itself to sepia

Very gloomy-looking day, but they look very cool for walks in the country. Cheers, H.
Bill Phillips: It is a great place to walk Harry.
And I like them too Bill. You did a nice conversion job!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Richard. I have come to love Clent and hope to work there again this year.
Beautiful view, I can see why you love this place. The landscape and vastness are awesome. Excellent picture of a great place.
Bill Phillips: The fascinating thing is that you are looking over the West Midlands conurbation, which consists of Birmingham, Wolverhampton and the Black country towns and is home to about 2.5 million people.
