Monochromic sturdiness. I think the b&w makes the stone in this structure look solid as a rock (if that makes any sense!)...

Nicely composed, too!

Andreea said...

Looks like the perfect subject for a b&w photo.

Cezar and Léia said...

Oh, I like this...I love stone buildings.

Eamon said...

additional thought: looks like the windmill in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang without the panes (it probably doesn't, but that was my first thought!(. Love the bricks

barb said...

That is perfect in Monochrome! Imposing and reliable, as every good lighthouse should be!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful lighthouse, EG... I love that old stone look... Aren't lighthouses interesting???? If I didn't collect waterfalls, I'd probably collect lighthouses. ha

Hugs,
Betsy

I love all your three recent blogs, the eagle is amazing, you caught it just in action. I have never seen sunflower this tall. Great BW of the lighthouse.

The lighthouse stone looks great in the monochrome. More solid for some reason. MB

Lovely lighthouse!

Shammickite said...

I really like the texture of the stone as portrayed in black'n'white.

Patti said...

That's a fantastic photo of the lighthouse. The B&W adds drama and I like the perspective you captured.

see you there! said...

What an amazing structure. I keep thinking about the people that built it and how they went about it.

Awesome shot! I love the way the black and white actually gives MORE dimension to the brick. The grainy sky imparts a sense of eeriness (sp?). I like it!

Aileni said...

Elizabeth is right. One to be very pleased with.

Bim said...

The stone wall looks great - and I love the grainy clouds.

Great subject for B&W. I love the way the tower points into a threatening sky. It's an evocative image, nicely done.
