Orange illuminated- Weekly Photo Challenge : Orange

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

It’s a color challenge this week. I don’t do these very often, but I seem to have brought back a whole lot of orange from India and it’s got me seeing the color everywhere. This week the challenge is to….
Photograph the Color Orange

Well as I entitled last weeks submission ‘Banana’ the idea of orange made me chuckle, should I continue with the fruit theme, however it was one of those rare occasions when we do not have an orange, satsuma, or clementine in the house.  So instead here are some lovely tulips for you.

Down in the woods – Friendly Friday: Photo walk

This Friday Something to Ponder About and The Snow Melts Somewhere have challenged us with:

It’s Friendly Friday again and the theme for this week is Photo Walk.

What catches your eye?

A walk down in our local woods always means there is a photo opportunity. So here are a few shots to give you a feel for what catches my eye, when there are no stone circles, ancient monuments, vast open landscapes, or cats to be found.

Royalty – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Color of Your Choice

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of a ‘Color of Your Choice’.

I am a particular fan of those colours that lie between Red and Blue on the colour wheel, Purple.  Deep purples, Royal purples, Magentas, Lilacs, in fact all shades of purple, especially when they are contrasted against green.  So here are some photos of natures colours of magic.
