REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Really Orange!

I've just been reminded how difficult it is to capture orange with a camera!  Oh, it's orange...but it's almost fluorescent orange.  These zinnias were planted by my sister in raised boxes in front of my mother's house.  Although I used a bright orange poppy last week for "Orange You Glad It's Friday?" I'm linking up this week with the trio of orange zinnias (at least, I think they're zinnias!).    Next week, I'll find orange somewhere other than a flower garden.

very pretty - and perfect for the meme. :)

Beautiful...such strong looking flowers. I know what you mean about the color orange being hard to capture...just like red. They often become overly saturated when I try to shoot them. Enjoy the weekend!

That IS really orange! And it IS hard to capture orange with a digital camera. You did good!

Agreed, it is hard, and that is part of why I chose orange for the meme! Thanks for coming by and sharing with us at "Orange You Glad It's Friday"!

I love the color! I forget about the meme this week....I will have to remember next week as it is fun searching for that bit of orange ;)

Yep those are Zinnia's. I hear you about bright orange. I found that out trying to do a Marigold photo, almost glowed in the dark.
Still a lovely shot and congrats on the featured entry from last week.

This orange is definitely charming.

Orange is difficult to photograph, as well as red, but you have done it wonderfully here.
