1.25.11 Orange

Winter days can be just so darn depressing.  I miss the colors of spring and summers.  Blossoms in the trees.  Birds singing.  Flower baskets filled to over flowing with color.
I am in much need of a color pick me up so I made my own today.
f/4 @ 1/125 1600 ISO OCF 85mm Macro lens
Not the best, light glaring off the glass and OMGOSH what was I thinking to have not reset the ISO?
Oh well, at least is bright and cheery. Much better that all the Black and White that I see everywhere.  Come on spring, I need a color fix.

That shot would encourage me to eat more oranges, if I didn't already!

Yum! I really want an orange now. I am glad I am not the only one to forget my ISO at times. :)

I love it! simply gorgeous. I love the bubbles and the crisp freshness of it all. And you are right, the orange just makes your heart forget about winter for a moment or two.

I love the water droplets on the bottom. I think I'm going to eat an orange with breakfast tomorrow...

great colorcombination with orange and blus and the droplets are very interesting. And.... I lack colors to and actually I also used oranges to bring out some color

I love this! Such a fun shot, you've inspired me to find something bright and cherry ... this drab gray of January is getting me down!

Awesome slice of orange! I'm soaking in all that Vitamin C just by looking at it. Great job.

I think orange is my new favorite color! Love the bubbles and the blue in your photo adds that little pop too.
