Actually in Colour! — Mid-Week Monochrome #48

Hi all 😃 My entry for Brashley’s MWM.

This shot was taken not long after dawn this morning, following a snowfall last night. As the mist descended it leached the colour away leaving a darkened, monochromatic world.

Learning a New Skill — Lens Artists Challenge #125

Hi all 😃 My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Tina: You Pick It.

This was inspired by Lisa Coleman’s latest Bird Weekly — Photo Challenge: Birds in Colour & Mono. In the second picture of her post, there is a slider bar which can be dragged back & forth to change the colour & grey scale aspects of the picture. I was very taken with this but, had no idea how it was done. I decided, for my entry, to use columns to put the colour & the black & white images side by side, but wordpress went into a huff & wouldn’t play along 😩 I ended up doing the images in a stacked format as that was all that was working. Below is an example.

Bushboy to the rescue. Brian, in the comments suggested that I edited the post using the compare function in the block editor.

So here is the newly edited post, using a newly learnt skill, inspired by Lisa & pointed in the right direction by Brian 😃 WordPress is a wonderful place 😊
