Nurture Photography Fall Challenge - Yellow/Light

This is the second week Live and Love Out Loud and Bumbles & Light  are hosting their Nurture Photography Fall Challenge.
It’s wonderful to have a challenge to think about and work on throughout the week. It just gives the creative process a bit more of a direction and ideas can flow more easily (at least that is the case for me)
This week’s challenge was yellow/light, which presented many opportunities here in Florida where summer is almost still in full strength. I had lots of yellow flowers to choose from and with the amount of sunshine we still get every day, it was easy to find very strong light. As I have mentioned before, I do miss a real fall. However, I am glad to be able to take autumn pictures that capture a different world from what people generally associate with the season.

“Before their supper they require
A dragon field of yellow fire
To light and toast them in the gloom
So much for old earth’s ashen doom.”
Robert Fitzgerald, “Lightness in Autumn” from Spring Shade: Poems 1931-1970

  1. I'm happy that you are enjoying the photo challenge Vivien. I feel the same way about it, even with hosting, that it gives me a little more inspiration and direction than I usually have :)

    I suppose it is a little more challenging for you, being in Florida, to find fall colours... but you've found some real gems, these are gorgeous.

    Thanks so much for taking part in the Nurture Photography Challenge! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for the next prompt, Orange/Warmth :)
