Lens-Artists Challenge: Delicate Colors

Lens-Artists Challenge #98: Delicate Colors

As many countries are opening up a bit from lock-down, and I was inspired by the soft glory of spring nature in my part of the world, I thought we would indulge in some Delicate Colours!

~~~

Delicate colors bring to mind a few old favorites. As well as some new discoveries.

A uniquely shaded rose. A painter’s palette of sorts. It was part of a birthday bouquet several years ago.

A walk on the beach in 2016 – right before sunset – showcased nature’s delicate balance of colors. I can’t wait to get back to visit.

During a recent walk I stopped to admire a neighbor’s extensive front yard garden. It is expertly planted so flowers bloom constantly throughout spring. Much appreciated and admired.

I spotted crocuses during a walk downtown along the river in April. They appeared to be hiding next to a concrete wall. Bent over in the wind.

A few days later they were gone.

  1. Wonderful – and then it is gone…Yes, a famous Swedish author always said “underbart Γ€r kort” – “wonderful is short” in direct translation. And I do believe that is the way it is. Such beautiful shades of delicate colours. I love forget-me-nots, but that beach image is my favorite here.
