Changing Moods of Fannyside Lochs — Fan Of… #129 and PastSquares

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 Of… is the changing moods of Fannyside Lochs as seen through PastSquares, & so is my latest post for Becky’s PastSquares. Some of my favourite shots have been captured at this small, peaceful Loch, like the one below.

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.

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.
