Since we are already into November and December is right around the corner, I will merge the two Months in regards to the Challenge.

 

This will allow everyone to post images that encompass a broad stroke from both months.

 

The Challenge is for COLORS!

Lots of COLORS.

Autumn COLORS.

Gaudy COLORS!

Christmas COLORS!

 

The subject doesn't matter, the colors do! If it is bright, loud and colorful .... it is COLORS and it belongs posted here.

 

Rules:

 

1) Any Camera

2) Try to keep the images to the ones taken in the last two months.

3) Post as many times as you like.

4) Have fun, as always!

 

An example of loud colors, just to get us started......

l prefer diesel locomotives over steam because most steamers are black and have no color. But this 1/24 scale is an exception.

The sun was out this morning so I took the rig out for some birding.

 

Nice to see the Common House Finch (male) again.  I have not seen many of these birds the last two years.

Thanks, Bill and Mark.  This little bird is indeed, amazingly colorful. Not quite on the same level as a Cardinal, but the male is fun to photograph.

Considering we don't have much fall foliage in south Texas, these trees put on a colorful show for this region.

:(

 

I am all for simple.  

Versus ....

Driving to a lot.
Looking at 20-30 trees all wrapped up and my wife asking, "What do you think?".
Then standing in line to pay.
Then figuring out how I am going to get this thing in her SUV.

Then cutting the bottom, screwing in the stand and getting it up.

Then hauling in 6 giant plastic containers of Christmas decorations and stuff.

and... in two weeks, repeat backward! Haul it to the curb and vacuum for weeks to get the thousands of needles it is already dropping!

Yup, simple looks mightly good! ;)

Very nice, by the way.
