Monochrome Madness 2-21

Another week of Leanne’ Cole’s wonderful Monochrome challenge.  Treat yourself to her Monochrome Madness page for all the submissions.

I hope everyone is enjoying summer up in the northern regions  and winter in the land down under! I’ve loved seeing all the images.

I  leave on the weekend for our trip!!  I have not scheduled anything but hopefully might have a chance to post a few from my laptop and say hello while traveling.  In the meantime if I catch something brilliant I will share but if not, don’t worry, I’m still here but it’s too late to say keep calm, panic mode has already set in!

I have not been out much the last few days so this is the monochrome version of a coloured photo I took a while back of Hatley Castle portico in the late afternoon.castle portico

    Cybele, enjoy your trip! This is a wonderful post. The images are excellent – the one in the meadow really blows me away and is the sort I thing I would like to do – but do I have the skills??? And Strawberry Fields – well you’re talking to an out and out Beatles fan here, so what more can I say – except that I feel sad to hear John, and wonder what he might have gone on to had he had the chance.

  11. That portico is gorgeous! Love your vintage development of it.

    Have a marvelous trip, and get home safely!

    Oh, I don’t think I ever answered your question about where I’m headed at the end of Aug. We’re cruising for He-Man’s birthday. He loves cruising! We’re sailing to the Eastern Caribbean. I hope to see some different birds than I see here.

    I’m looking forward to the arm-chair tour of your trip. Be safe! xx

    Gosh these are good. The one of the castle looks so dreamy – like an illustration from an old book of fairytales. Have a wonderful holiday. 🙂

    You’re getting beautiful effects Cybele! I finally joined the Adobe Cloud after 3-4 years. Still hooked on Bridge and PS though, because LR makes me feel as it were another program, and I’m a one-program person.
