Today I’m participating in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and her theme is “two colors or hues only”. I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.

I realized it was quite a challenge to find photos that only showed two colors, and not three or more, but here’s a nice selection of my favorites, like this photo of a beautiful blue sky after the rain and a tree branch covered with leftover raindrops.

To continue with the water theme, here are some sea jellies lit up in blue in an aquarium, with the water as a black background.

I love to capture red and green on the same picture. These complementary colors are some of my favorite to see in nature, as on this Cotoneaster Lacteus bush in seeds.

Here’s another example to illustrate how well red and green go together on this passion flower in full bloom.

This cactus covered with many tiny yellow blooms is a great attraction for a busy bee looking to collect nectar and pollen.

Very close to the complementary red and green I shared above, here is a splash of pink and green with this beautiful pink powder puff flower.

Yellow and green aren’t complementary colors but I still like the way they look together with this yellow rose flower about to open.

Nature sure knows how to make good use of complementary colors everywhere, such as purple and yellow on this large lily flower.

Orange and blue are another set of complementary colors. Is there any better background than a bright blue sky for these orange maple leaves?

Finally, the good thing about white is that it goes well with almost any other color. I love the soft glow it emits when put against a green background. Enjoy this white rose covered with dew drops and a white powder puff bloom as my last two choices for this colorful theme.

      Thank you! I too love watching sea jellies swimming around in an aquarium. They look so peaceful. Now encountering them when I’m swimming in the ocean is a different story!

    Incredibly beautiful pictures – impossible to pick a favorite, but I never saw a passion flower so lovely as that! Greetings from Egypt!

      Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I’m glad you enjoyed this passion flower. It was the only one I’ve ever seen so far so I was happy to have my camera with me that day.
