Oranges on Both Sides of the Pond

For this post I returned to last July and August. Some shots are from the UK, others from Canada, all were taken because they glowed at me.

At the Flying Legends Airshow at Duxford Airbase near Cambridge, she stood out in the crowd. Kind of makes you understand why Gilbert Blythe called Anne of Green Gables 'Carrots'.

A walk down country lanes last August netted me this shot of a Jack in the Pulpit, free of its protective leaves and glowing against the orange of centuries old brick.

Orange, the colour of the Solar Plexus Chakra and of creativity – one of the few words that doesn’t have an absolute rhyme and one of the most difficult colours to wear, it is unique and marvelous.

  1. These are wonderful shots – gave me goose bumps. My hair ‘use’ to be that color naturally, the butterflies and Jack in the Pulpit are beautiful, the chalk artist’s work is outstanding, and, of course, I like beautiful fall leaves and gorgeous lights. Great submission. 🙂
