I intended to post this image because it's the only time before this current challenge that I could definitely remember deliberately turning a picture into a monochrome version for dramatic effect. When I found it, I discovered to my horror it was in fact posted right here in Mar 2004 in Barbara Coultry's 'Challenge - Color Blind'. And I used to believe I had an excellent memory.

Nevertheless, I'd like to share it again, because it's a vastly better representation than the colour original (below) of what I remember seeing in the sky close to home, and because I've just managed to reproduce the conversion so I know how I did it... Converted to greyscale in PSP, and adjusted the curve by eye in 'levels' to bring out the detail in the clouds.

Very nice, Alan. It does, indeed, look like a fire in the sky. It also looks like a giant dust devil. Nice conversion.
