This blog is all about the fine art of monochrome photography. It includes hints and tips on composition and digital darkroom processes, achievements and images I'm pleased with, musings about this and that and items I find interesting.
I'm quite happy for it to grow like topsy, to evolve as it goes...

Fine Art - Beyond The Pale Canvas Prints
Pic of the day
Here's my chosen picture of the day for this blog and I hope you enjoy it. It's presented as a fine art wrapped canvas. Click to see it from different angles and customize with your size.
Dreamy Moments series The picture is of a fence at the side of sand dunes at Bantham Beach, Devon. The title has nothing to do with buckets :)
An old word for fence was based on the word "pale", meaning pointed wooden sticks (think "impale"). These fences marked the (defensive) boundary of a village or group of houses, so being "beyond the pale" meant you were beyond the safe area and you'd better watch out!
