Driving along a lonely stretch of highway in Iceland, I saw the pyramidal spire of a church set against the hillside. I probably wouldn't have noticed it if the spire wasn't red, as it wasn't on the road but set quite a way off it. The sky was dull and grey, and the best angle for the shot didn't set the church against the hills but against open sky, with the hills off to the left. Without a good sunset or sunrise, without the hills in the background, the best way to compose this shot was a minimalist approach by bringing out the drama in the sky. I thought this shot looked better in B/W than in colour.
