Today’s colour is yellow. When I was taking these photos I noticed a lot of the songs I was listening to had the word = sunshine in them. It was a gorgeous day and it really was as the hymn says “I have sunshine in my soul today”. I just love these poppies. They are just such a strong yellow colour and really stand out from the background. As you can see these were taken in the shade.
And these were taken in the sun. I tried to get the texture of the petals in the sun, using the sun to create the shadows and contrasts.
This is my favourite as I love the lines of the petals.
Of course there are the ranunculus as well. – I checked for the spelling on that one. Anyway their yellow is a richer, deeper colour – the petals are not as delicate as the poppies but they are rich and vibrant – a real gold colour.
This peony is hidden away among the leaves and is a softer hue than the flowers above.
I found these yellow daisies or margaritas making a show on the way home. I like the strong contrasts of the green and yellows.
These roses have more of a orange hue to them, than yellow.
Another colour tomorrow.
