Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vibrant colours

DSCF0468 (640x480)

Good morning from a grey Hastings morning.

This week Cee has given us the challenge to find vibrant photos.  That is easy for me as I love strong colours.  That said my post of pastel roses was popular.

Searching through a memory stick I found this top photo.  It hasn’t been edited.

We have a very strong colour here in New Zealand which does make the colours more vibrant.  I came home from shopping yesterday and noticed how the light was filtering through these new leaves.  It seemed only yesterday there were bare branches and overnight it sprouted new life.

Then there are the last of the tulips.

I just dumped my groceries and grabbed the camera to make the most of the strong light.

Floral Friday


Good morning from another sunny Hastings day.  The spring equinox winds are here for the next few days.  I am looking out into the garden as I write this and see the last of the spring blossoms being blown around in the wind – it looks like snow.

So onto something bright and cheerful today.  My neighbour has a tiny garden and in the past week these gorgeous two-tone tulips are flowering.  So I have been making the most of the opportunity of taking photos – as you do.
