Anne Sandler has chosen “Colorful Expressions” for the theme of this week’s photo challenge. Please visit her post HERE to learn how color enhances photographs and see her wonderful examples. As the global community celebrates Earth Day this week, I hope you’ll feel a gratitude and affection for our planet that compels you to protect and defend her with your best efforts.
I just talked to my son who lives where we will be going back to in a couple of weeks. He said it is still winter in Michigan – not even any fresh green on the shrubs on the forest’s floor. I think I will have to use my winter of Florida colors for this one.
I sure did enjoy your colors – especially the green section. 🙂
We actually had snow here for two days this week. Very unusual! Spring is always unpredictable. 😉
Yuck. I think I’ll focus on enjoying the south as long as I can.
Thanks for these vibrant colors!
My pleasure! 🙂
Priscilla, an excellent choice of nature’s expressive colors. Beautiful flowers and sunsets, and forests.
Thanks, Anne! I appreciate your challenge and your hospitality for the group. 🙂
Well done! Great quotes to go along with your colorful photographs!
Thanks, Marlene. I am glad I found colorful verbal expressions as well!
What glorious colour and a few fun ones thrown in.
Your post reminds me of the phrase “an embarrassment of riches Priscilla! So many amazing images of marvelous colors – fabulous. A lovely nod for Earth Day as well.
Thanks, Tina! (I’ll try not to be embarrassed, just grateful. 😉 )
Great set. Specially liked the man sleeping in the field. I wouldn’t mind doing that
Thanks! That’s actually a man sleeping at a campground near the Sturgeon River Gorge, too tired to put up the tent just yet. 😉
Nice portrait of the deer on the hillside!
Thank you! I think that was in Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota. Just a gorgeous day in late spring to be a deer in the woods.
