Cholera Monument revisited.

Cholera Monument revisited.

Photo Information
I revisited the Cholera Monument today, and re did this photo, when I took it last year I had knocked the top off it, converted to sepia as the sky went grey. This monument is dedicated to the people who died from Cholera in the 1800s from the poor water in Sheffield, and there are 395 buried here, it is a lovely peaceful place to sit and reflect, with super views over the city.

Reminds me of a space rocket in this picture Trixie.

Very moody with the conversion.

Nice capture Trixie. I like the effect of the wide angle lens and the nice muted colours, especially the brownish-orange colour of the sky.
Your shots are getting better and better. Keep it up.
