This week’s challenge is use the color wheel to find contrasting colors. I brought some clementines to work for breakfast this morning and realized that my blue mouse pad is the perfect contrast for their orange.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Blue Skies

blueskies_nmp

In September, I was driving past this field and the combination of the small sunflowers against the blue sky made me really glad I had my camera with me. I know I’ve said this a few times in recent posts, but we really have had the most amazing fall. Beautiful leaves for months, clear skies, light rain when needed, and no snow to turn us suddenly to winter. The crispness of the cooling weather also helps create beautiful skies. Summer skies can be washed-out by the sun; winter skies can be days on end blocked by clouds, but fall and spring provide a wonderful time to capture the perfect blue sky.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF BLUE SKIES.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Jewel Colors

As many of you know, my husband and I had the chance to visit the Hawaii Islands last May. If there is anywhere in the world that is alive with jewel colors, it’s Hawaii. The brilliant, bright greens, the stunning hues of the native flowers, and the deep blues of the Pacific Ocean surround you everywhere. We came across this proud fellow at the Smith’s Family Farm Luau. He seemed more than happy to strut his stuff and show off his plumage to us as we rode by.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING THE BRILLIANT JEWEL COLORS.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs of Fall

signs_of_fall_nmp

In the northern hemisphere, tomorrow (September 22) is the first day of fall. The weather is turning cool, the kids are back in school, and the foliage is putting on a brilliant color show. Fall is my favorite time of year. It has my favorite holidays (Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the build up to Christmas). I love pulling out sweaters and drinking hot chocolate. I even look forward to the first real snow fall (though I’m completely sick of the white stuff by January 4). Welcome, fall! Please hang out with us for a while.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF THINGS THAT MEAN FALL TO YOU.
