Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange

Our theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is:  Orange.
Our instructions: ” This week, share a group of photos where orange is either the dominant color, or provides a bold highlight. Shoot for at least three photos, and look for different shades — bright neons, deep rusts, delicate peaches.”

Most of the snow piles have melted here in Virginia, but underneath all that snow is a mosaic of . . . brown.  Blah.  So, to pull off this week’s orange challenge, I had to raid my photography archives.

  1. My beautiful daughter (who needs to stop it with the growing up) in front of Dark Hollow Falls at the Shenandoah National Park.  She’s sporting her orange soccer team jersey.  Btw, I did ask her permission to post this photo, so there won’t be any teenage wrath later this evening when she sees this.  😉
  2. Rooster — Key West, Florida.  These guys just run amuck in Key West!
  3. La Boca, Argentina.  I messed with the colors in this photo to highlight the orange family — I removed the blues and greens.  Man, I love post-processing!
  4. Gualeguay, Entre Rios, Argentina.  Just a random pot of herbs that I liked.
  5. Poppies!  Near Napa Valley, California.  (I took the green out of this photo for effect).
  6. Starfish — Newport, Oregon.  Believe it or not, these are the true colors — I didn’t change a thing.

The photo of my daughter was taken with my Nikon D800.  The rest were taken with my “traveling camera”, a Nikon P510.

Here’s hoping more and more orange starts popping up in Virginia!  Have a great weekend, everyone.
