WPC: Monochromatic in Northern Spain

Surprise! At least to me. Since I am currently editing my photos of northern Spain, I decided to ‘paint’ a monochromatic portrait of Spain.

I had planned on a full spectrum of monochromes, but as I sorted through my photos it appeared that northern Spain, along the Costa Verde (Green Coast), was predominately green.

Green monochromes:

Grey monochromes:
