Pink is one of my favorite colors, and the bolder, the better, especially when it comes to photographing it. I love the many different shades of pink that Mother Nature has come up with, from the light pink of this beautiful rose,

and this gentle light pink water lily,

to the ultra bold pink of this snapdragon flower.

If pink contains a little bit of orange, then it can be called coral pink, as beautifully displayed in this pink poppy flower.

Mother Nature can display several shades of pink right next to each other, for example in these lovely cherry blossoms,

or these pink manuka flowers.

Of course, pink doesn’t only occur among flowers in nature. If you’re lucky, you can witness pink in the sky, whether it is a pink sunrise,

or a pink sunset.

I love anything colorful and I enjoy most colors out there, but I know that pink, purple and blue tend to be my favorite. I love wearing these colors and I enjoy spotting them in nature as well. Here are a few of my favorite colors that make me happy every time Mother Nature uses them on her color palette.

This has to be my most favorite color to find in nature: magenta. It really says, I’m happy!

Magenta and purple together look very pretty too.

Who can argue that all shades of purple look beautiful?

And fuchsia is nature’s burst of laughter, as in this pink water lily.
