Really enjoyable b&w!

I like how the slates go from lighter to darker to contrast with the sky.

The silhouette of the solitary tree on the ridge is strong element.

hi I don't think so this was shot in the preseli hills in Pembrokeshire Wales but there are signs on the few remaining walls of old buildings stating that it is an archaeological site, so you could be right.
Thanks again Bart.
