Photo Challenge: Orange you glad it’s photo challenge time?

This week, share a group of photos where orange is either the dominant color, or provides a bold highlight. Shoot for at least three photos, and look for different shades — bright neons, deep rusts, delicate peaches.

I think of orange as the color of autumn. Leaves on the trees, pumpkins on the vine or with carved, grinning faces. But it’s also the color of day lilies that grow wild along the roads all around New England, of sunrise and sunset. Of traffic cones and reflections. And everyone’s favorite citrus fruit.

    • Thank you. Autumn is prime time for photography in this region, and it’s a very orange time of year. Pumpkins, foliage. The other stuff I just happened to have. I like using some favorite pictures in a collage. A good picture deserves to be seen more than once 🙂

    • Thanks! I try to find pictures that work well in the collage. We can’t completely control how the collage fits together — that’s automated — so there’s a lot of trial and error involve. I tried. I erred. I tried again 🙂

    • Thanks, my friend 🙂 That is one of my top five favorite photos ever. It’s Rockport Harbor on Cape Ann, Massachusetts … the MOST photographed harbor in the U.S. You’ll see versions of it on post cards, calendars, and greeting cards everywhere. It is exceptionally photogenic. The thing which made it special was my willingness to crawl out of bed at 4 in the morning to shoot the sunrise over the harbor while letting a trillion mosquitoes feast on my body. I itched for weeks!
