These are great, Cybele. I especially like the one of Glendalough Ireland. The Inverlochy one is a close second! All are beautiful! 🙂
that is a gorgeous and magical spot Linda!! Thank you!
The ruins are beautiful as is the ripples of cloud adding to the mysterious atmosphere of the photo. Love the topaz, I’ll check it out. 🙂

I love the oblique angle and rippling of those clouds, as well as the contrasting texture between them and the stones.

I almost didn’t know this was you by looking at the picture. It’s different from what you normally do but equally beautiful. 🙂
one must never be predictable!! 😀 Thanks Laura!!!
I’m with you there! 😀 You’re welcome!
Great contrast, texture and mysterious mood with the clouds and stones of the castle, Cybele. Very nice result. As a matter of interest, what does the Topaz flter do?
Thank you Chris!! You can go to their website and download different topaz filters on a trial basis. There are quite a few of them at different cost. They add glow effects, painterly effects etc!! Just a bit of fun with editing stuff!! I try not to over do it lol!!
I really, really like this image! 🙂
thank you Fairy!!! I love old ruins!
Me too! They have so many stories to tell. 🙂
Masterful work in mono Cybele!
Imposing old castle,perfect angle,the white glow behind makes a perfect contrast.As for the Ireland scenery and the hyacinthus macro,when enlarged,are really stunning and look so beautiful and classic in b/w!
