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.
- 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. 😉
- Rooster — Key West, Florida. These guys just run amuck in Key West!
- 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!
- Gualeguay, Entre Rios, Argentina. Just a random pot of herbs that I liked.
- Poppies! Near Napa Valley, California. (I took the green out of this photo for effect).
- 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.
