Magenta Roses – Weekly Prompts: Magenta Rose

This weekend GC and SueW have chosen the following as the theme for their challenge.

At the start of 2019, GC and I introduced a monthly colour challenge that launches on the first Saturday of each month, and continues thoughout the month. The colour for September is Magenta Rose.

I don’t know about you, but I never realised there were so many different names for pink, and I’m not even sure how many photos I can find for the shade of Magenta Rose, but that’s the challenge, and the hunt is part of the fun!

Bit of a cheat as they did start of as very dark burgundy roses, but I did want to use roses, and fuchsias were well fuchsia, pinks where pink… Not quite the shade of ‘Magenta rose’, but certainly now Magenta roses!

Red rose and raindrops – A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops.

This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:

With the rain yesterday, I had fun capturing the raindrops on my tulips. Rain can be tricky to photograph, but raindrops on objects are a lot of fun. The give things a fresh feeling.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING RAINDROPS.

It had just been raining, it rained nearly every day during our visit to Dartmoor that year.

Reflective skull – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Shiny

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Shiny’.

Well there were a lot of photos that I could have used for this challenge, however I had already used most for other challenges, and I always like to use something new if possible, although I do sometimes forget what I have used before.

Anyway a previously unedited photo, taken for no apparent reason and therefore unedited, and it is metal and shiny!

So what previous challenge entrants would I have used?  Two come from something I  posted only yesterday, both my bass Tallulah and our new table are shiny, other thoughts were a toy Caterpillar, a shiny red tulip and a rose hip.
