This photo challenge spoke to me, and after a quick flick through my media library, I realize they do attract my attention wherever I am!

I hope these images give your eyes Something beautiful to Ponder About

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Leaves and Trees

A favourite photographic subject of mine. Everyone in the Northern hemisphere is looking to the Spring, however, being me, I just HAD to include at least one winter tree photograph, or two, for Cee’s Challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – The Colour Purple

Cee’s the colour Purple challenge

Purple can be a magical colour in nature, so  much so that it almost looks ethereal in its different shades and tints. Some would call it lilac, or that dreaded word…. mauve….. I am not fond of that word. I am not a pastel person. Mauve reminds me of bland pastel colours, that can make me feel physically sick! Bright, bold, clean colours stimulate me. Yet this soft lilac waterlilly is one of my favourite photographs. To me the photograph is mystical and ethereal, but then I do have a vivid imagination…

 More inclining to magenta, I still call the flower in the following photo a purple cabbage flower.

Does Colour affect your mood? Something to ponder about.
