Wasn't going to enter this one but then while we were out at the Christmas tree farm I noticed these trees on top of the old landfill. Cloudy day so ... I kind of liked the moodiness of the scene. If you look closely you can see supports for one of the trees. It's very windy up there!

This looks like the 3 amigos versus the great a terrible world - B/W enhances this 8

Wonderful choice! Works very well for me in the slightly toned monochrome, too.

Very nice BW processing. I like this quite a bit. Nice mix of sky and Earth, and interesting curvature of the hill.
