Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “orange”. 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.
Orange is far from being my favorite color but I love how nature displays it boldly. My favorite display has to be this orange dragonfly I captured a few weeks ago. It was a lucky shot for sure. You can see my photo of a blue dragonfly here.
While I visited San Diego’s Balboa Park on Sunday, I stopped by the rose garden and took several photos of the many colorful roses. You can view these beautiful (and not orange) roses in yesterday’s post. Here are a few orange roses I saw while there:
I tried to use the very cloudy sky as a background for the next photo. I kind of like the effect, although I bet this rose would be absolutely beautiful on a blue background since the two colors are opposite on the color wheel.
And here’s a last large burst of orange roses for you!
This next rose is more subtle and displays a mix of orange, yellow and light pink. I love this type of tea roses and they usually smell very good.
Of course, roses are not the only flowers that are orange. Here are a few more orange flowers I’ve photographed in the past, like this beautiful orange protea pincushion.
I’m not sure what the next flower is called but I love its big fuzzy petals.
I like the orange leaves of fall foliage. We don’t get a lot of that in San Diego, so it’s nice to spot it here and there.
Of course, I can’t participate in an orange theme without displaying an orange, can I? Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
