It's been a long while since I checked in with Creative Every Day. This month's theme is "Color," and just looking out our window has made me realize how much color is displayed every day in nature and so conveniently. Early last week, we went to our favorite spot at Cannon Beach, Oregon, and Dick took lots of colorful photos.
Color of Sunset
What is it about sunrise and sunset that makes so many lovely colors? If one could only duplicate these colors, which one would you choose? Once I knit a stole in a pretty silk yarn called "Fog". How can anyone create such a color and hope to get it right?
Color of Fog
Have you ever noticed the color of dark? At first your eyes can't take it in, and then, maybe with the help of a camera, you begin to see the colors.
Color of Night
And then there are the colors of God's creatures: flowers in spring, the forest, and all sorts of animals, some that just wander through your yard!Color of Raccoon Fur
Or the sea creatures, some that you can only see at low tide.
Green Sea Anenome
Or even under a rock at low tide.
Orange and Purple Starfish
Then just yesterday, we drove up to LaConner, Washington, to look for tulips in the Skagit Valley. What we found were fields of daffodils and tulips.
Glorious yellow as far as the eye can see! A bit farther down the road, we found some tulip fields. How do you suppose this red one escaped?
The Lone Red Tulip
And then we saw Mount Baker, standing guard in the background, silent and snow-covered.
The Color of Snow
Just as we were about to head back to the city, we spotted one more field of tulips in full bloom.
Aren't these colors wonderful? And they're all out there, waiting for you to just step outside!
