Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #98 – Delicate Colors

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever]

The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Leya/Ann-Christine.

Says she: “I thought we would indulge in some Delicate Colours! They are everywhere in nature, but also to be found anywhere you look, in for example fashion, art and architecture.”

I suspect there will be more than a few photos of flowers for this challenge. Coincidentally, a couple of days ago I was in our local park, a few minutes walk away. All photos were taken with my iPhone X, unretouched save for cropping.

The Columbine, Colorado’s state flower:

Iris. Their season is waning here, but a few remain:

A rose is a rose is a rose is a rose… Nothing quite like it:

Next, it looks a little like Indian Blanket, but more likely a daisy of some sort. A candidate for conversion to a jigsaw puzzle, perhaps? 🙂 🙂

More Irises:

Finally, a cluster of Columbine, with DELICATE pink tails:

I rest my case.

Stay safe be well.

Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

    Well – you did find many delicate colours, John! And that rose is a gorgeous one. But, your suggestion for a jigsaw would be way too difficult for me…I have no idea what flower it is – even if it is beautiful!

    Lovely. The daisy like flower is on a ground cover succulent called Ice Plant. It is an invasive plant that has escaped into native areas. When I visited Land’s End in Portugal, it had taken over the whole area and driven out the native plants. We thought it looks so pretty until we found out what it was.
