Another of the photos that I took when I was last in Allihies, in 2011. Despite appearances it was actually quite a nice day and the sea was (relatively) calm for the west of Ireland.

I developed this one earlier today using Lightroom 4 (which I use on pretty much all my pictures) and a demo copy of Silver Efex Pro, software specifically designed for producing good black and white images from colour originals. I'm not sure whether or not I'll buy it yet, so expect to see a few more b & w images posted up before the trial period runs out.
