Saturday PhotoHunt - Colourful.


We had a couple of weeks of dry weather a while back. I found this bank of dead, dry grass and baked leaves.
In the middle were these two undersized sorrel leaves, bright red.

Colourful!


PhotoHunt is hosted by TNChick. It's worth visiting to see all the colourful photos on offer.

Happy Hunting.

The leaaves of Autumn, a good choice.
There's already a hint of changing colour around - I can smell Autumn in the air & the hips & hoars are red!

Isn't it a great feeling when just a small example of bright colour in a tapestry of more bland tones always looks like glowing treasure! Great pic!

I love the subtle simplicity of this shot - nature at its best! Hope you're having a better weekend than we are here in Swansea. There's a screaming gale going on, with torrential rain!
