Good morning from a very bright sunny Hastings morning. A huge change from what we have been having all week. I’m not complaining.
This week we have the colour yellow for Cee’s challenge.
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: The Color Yellow
So the first photo is of our native bird the tui surrounded by the yellow kowhai flowers which they just can’t get enough of.
These two photos were taken with my iPhone 5S and edited with Tangled FX.
Finally a splash of colour against the water.

Thanks for visiting.
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.
