Life in Colour

To find out more about this year’s photo challenge here on Travel Words, please read this post.

This month we will be looking for Yellow. A bright and happy colour and often associated with spring. The sun in the sky, heat and light. What yellows can you find in your world?

The last time I saw this golden field was in 2015. Four years after I first set eyes upon it. A good example of crop rotation. Growing above head height I had to hold the camera above my head to get some of these shots. As the pollen caused my eyes to water and my nose to sneeze, I think it was worth it…

This is the last week for the colour yellow so if you have any left then please join in now. Next Sunday we will be looking for a different colour to jazz up the month of March.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I should’ve, I know. I should’ve entered. But I was overwhelmed by everyone’s yellows and by the time I’d finished reading and looking I had a yellow mist in front of my eyes. All were lovely, all spectacular.

    1. It is a popular colour indeed! But maybe you have an interesting, different yellow you could share? I am staring at a yellow lamp as I type this, but I think I have shared enough yellows for one month. 😊

  2. Beautiful! Okay, so we have another week of yellow. I’d best get back to searching as I thought today was the last day. Hmmm, I might have a few extra photos lying around. I like your haiku, BTW.


    1. Well if you consider the challenge as just the complete month then today is the last day, but the new colour won’t appear until next Sunday so if you do have any spare yellows then by all means share them 😊
