Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge : Orange

I have just recently found this lovely site. This week Cee has put out a challenge to use orange in your photo’s. I couldn’t resist this as orange is my favourite colour (Ok I know all you Americans are tut-tutting about my spelling…) so I had to join in. Very hard to just keep it down to 3. Have a look at Cee’s Life Photography blog you will find many more beautiful photos…

In 2010 we went over to Western Australia. It had been a dream of mine to make the pilgrimage in spring time to WA as it is the mecca for viewing wild flowers. It did not disappoint, 2010 was a spectacular year for the flowers as there had been rain during winter ensuring good growth. Arriving in Broome in July we slowly drove along the Western Australia coast following the wild flowers as they gradually spread south. It is hard to describe the incredible sight of acres and acres of wild flowers in full bloom, from the road side to the horizon, all colours, all shapes.

I have just chosen a couple for this post but if you would like to see more click here to see a slide-show I have put on another post…

 

 

Now for some thing quite different. About ten years ago, before I had a digital camera I liked to potter around with acrylic paints and my favourite subject was flowers, and as you can see I loved orange, so this is one I painted. It is very stylized poppies…

I do not paint now….
