It's probably just me but I see the colour as an irrelevant distraction. On the other hand the B& W is an absolute cracker and the power of the structure is enhaced by the light and minimises the adversity of the white-out of the sky.
Curiously, given the colour of the structure, B&W film would benefit from a 25 Red filter to lighten the walls and darken the sky. Hopefully, weather permitting, my escape from all football related annoyance will be provided by a road trip tomorrow.
