This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.
This HDR image is a result of tone mapping 6 images taken with my DX camera.
The red sky is a result of the eruption of the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull on March, 20th. For several weeks the sky was polluted by volcanic ashes. No aviation was allowed during these weeks because of the ashes in the sky. The evening skies became more reddish than usual.
