  1. So beautiful. Such wonderful finds for this color! Thank you so so much for sharing 🙂

    • This is a color I’ve always liked- especially in foliage- but didn’t know this name for it. An easy one this week, Jenny 😉 Thank you! I”m looking forward to your weather challenge. I’m hoping for some interesting ice photos later this week. Best wishes for a great day! WG

      • Glad someone found it easy 😉

        I’m glad your excited, I’m a little nervous about a fall out in interest in the challenge with the switch from colors to weather. But we shall see. I’m excited about the weather challenges too though!

        • You will have to see how it goes, but I predict that interest in the challenge will only increase 😉 Do you ever look at Daily Post’s “Weekly Photo Challenge?” Hundreds of entries each week. I think it is fun to look for, or compose, a photo to meet a simple challenge. We all have weather! The colors can be challenging, too. Best wishes- WG

          • I do often look at the Weekly Photo Challenge. I haven’t participated as much, as of late, but occasionally I link a post there or to the Daily Prompt. It amazes me how many people share their pieces to the Weekly Photo Challenge. It’s like a huge collaborative art piece.

  2. Beautiful examples of the color!
