A Punch of Color (Macro)

It's week 41 for the Focus on Life:2014 Weekly Photography Challenge.  

For October our topic is COLOR and so this week Sally prompted us with this:




"Since October's topic is color, why not take a look at color on the macro side of things?  
A Punchy Shot of Color, Up Close!"

I LOVE macro shots. They just amaze me.  All those cool textures, colors, and itty-bitty insects. Tiny little worlds going on right before our eyes, only we can't see them unless we stop and get super, super up-close!

It rained recently here in the desert. Supposedly the 'last' of our monsoon weather for the year.




I love taking macros shots of the rose garden in our yard. I'm a bit out of practice as I haven't taken any macro shots for a while now, but boy are they fun to try and capture!




Let's see what other Punchy, Up-Close Shots of Color the rest of the gang captured this week, shall we? 




Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Color Up Close!
Cheers,
~Shel~

  2. Love that color of green on the vibrant pink flower. And the drop in your second photo looks like it is just balanced there for a moment, which you were able to capture. Great pics!

  7. Just wow! Those shots of the water droplet are awesome, Shel! Like you can both see through it and see a bit of reflection of what was above the leaf.
