Monochrome landscapes

I have been spending more time exploring the possibilities for monochrome images in landscape photography. The problem with colour landscapes, especially in good weather, is that the colours dominate and distract. Sometimes the colours are critical eg. for sunrises and sunsets, but often I think monochrome images are better at communicating an atmosphere and capturing the essence of a place.

Oxen Craig on Bennachie. Less visited than the main top.
Ben Hee - improving weather on a dull day.
Surf riders - St Cyrus. I liked the strong diagonals in this image.
Lairig Ghru. One of my favourite images that, I think, captures the bleak beauty of the pass.
Dunnotar Castle - a winter image.
Another image of Dunnotar Castle that, I think, reflects its original role as a fortress.
Stonehaven beach
Morecambe Bay near Silverdale. We used to live near here.
Loch Tulla - clearing weather after a wet day in Glencoe.
Grass in snow. Maybe not a landscape but I liked the simplicity of this image taken on my phone during a winter walk.
