Silhouetted at Dawn — TreeSquare

Hi, all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for Becky’s July TreeSquare. This is also my entry for Tina’s Lens-Artists Challenge #154 — One Photo Two Ways, July Processing Challenge by the Squirrel Chase, & Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Trees or Tree Parts.

…and the original; I think I prefer this to the square crop ๐Ÿค”

But I’m not finished; I edited through a monochrome filter for Cee’s Black & White Challenge, then tried desaturating it for a colder feel as the original has a lot of warmth to it, owing to the depth of colour (it was about -1โ„ƒ after all) & finally trying a dramatic cool filter.

A Dawn Walk With Lensy Pt 1 — Fan Of… #106

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Ofโ€ฆ is a dawn walk with Lensy.

Owing to lockdown restrictions & a high workload, I haven’t been out with Snappy (DSLR) & Lensy (lensball) since my visit to Palacrigg Country Park on New Years Day. I got the chance to get out last week & was up at Fannyside Lochs, within Palacerigg Country Park for sunrise. I took full advantage of clear conditions & plenty of posts & stumps to put Lensy on & took about 250 shots in total (don’t worry, they’re not all with lensy ๐Ÿคฃ). I started up at the Lochs & then followed numerous trails back towards home. I’ve split up the walk into 3 distinct phases: Fannyside Lochs (today’s post), walking through the park (pt 2) & some woodland pics (pt 3).

The next few weeks will be a reflections series. These are from a recent dawn walk up at Fannyside Lochs. The loch was still, allowing for some great reflections, with some low lying mist to add to the scene.
