I expected to feature bright spring colour for Donna's current photo challenge. My garden is full of bold reds and blues just now, not to mention that spring-fresh hue of green. But an anniversary get-away drew me into the smoother, softer tones of the sea.
Standing on the beach, I thought of these two vistas as monochromatic. It wasn't until I increased the contrast a little (as I do with most of my photos) that I really saw the depth of blue in sky and water. Inspired (intrigued?) I bumped up the saturation the tiniest little bit.
This was the view from our private hot tub. We watched the blue blue blue of sea and sky and missed a certain little girl with blue eyes, who kept her Nana and Grandpa very busy.
This picture is a couple of months old, but I love the colours. Red. Pink. Blue. All very saturated. I used a vignette tool in Picasa to darken the edges of the photo a little and draw greater attention to Miss S's face.
Linking to Donna's Personal Photo Challenge. To be perfectly honest, I'm scrambling a little to get this up today. My mind has been full of other things this week, but it's been fun to browse through my pictures and think of colour. I'm looking forward to visiting your colour too.
