dayspring early bright
a palette of green
spills across the pond
More pink here, if you please.

I’ve been working with some colorful photos for the past few days, trying to brighten and warm things up a little during these cold winter months.
If this photo looks familiar to you, there’s a good reason for that. It’s a repeat. But I like the fiery pink so much that I decided it was worth another look at it. It’s been tweaked a little since I last posted it, but not enough to make a big difference. Instead, just enough to bring out the pink a little more.

Osh over at Deaf Pagan Crossroads emailed me with a request for the color orange. Here ya go, Osh. Orange, in all its glory. Well… maybe not all. But some of its glory.
I don’t know why I put off orange for so long. It’s not as if I hate the color or anything. In fact, I’m quite fond of it, especially this time of year. (To be honest, the real reason I put off orange was because it takes me a ridiculously long time to put these things together and I haven’t had much in the way of spare time now that I’m not forced to rest because of pain/illness.)

As I was going through my photographs looking for orange (a color that’s not at all difficult to spot!), I was surprised to find that orange likes to hang around with other colors more often than not.

Oh sure, it occasionally stands out all by itself…

But in most of my photos orange is buddying up to some other color or colors.
