I have always admired Ansel Adams bravery to tease the traditional landscape admirers with his magnificent vistas completely devoid of colour.

My aim here was to take an ordinary beach-scape with bright blue skies and yellow-white sand and turn it into something even more dramatic, and what better way than with black and white photography. However to push the button even more, I have added some HDR (High Dynamic Range) principles to the final editing process.
