Round Tower – Monochrome Madness Challenge…..

Glendalough Round Tower

For this weeks Monochrome Madness Challenge,and  in keeping with my ongoing Glendalough Theme I chose to do a sneak peak image taken of the stunning round tower. I won’t go into to much detail about the Round Tower, as there will be a full post dedicated to in in a few days along with more images. Suffice to say that it is one of the most striking Towers I have visited to date. It stands at approx 30 meters in height and commands a watchful presence over the Valley in which it stands.

Again I shot this on my D40 in colour and converted to B&W in CS6 Played with some sliders to achieve a look I was happy with. So that’s enough about me, the rest of this weeks MMC images will go live some time later todayover on Leanne Cole’s Blog, depending on your time zone. Each week there are contributions from from photographers around the globe. So whether you are looking for inspiration or have a thing for black & white photography, you know were to find it. 🙂

    Very dramatic tower…for some reason it makes me think of running widdershins around a tower – and a book I read as a child, based on Browning’s Childe Roland.

    • Thanks Cybele, it sure is a wonderful place. if you get back try to check out the equally stunning Clonmacnoise, you will love it.

      Funny you mention Rapunzel, my little girl Ava said the exact same thing when she saw it. She goes crazy when she see’s these towers and has told me numerous times that when she is a big girl, she wants to live in one 🙂
