Photo Hunt - Colourful


The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is colourful. This was taken at Annes Grove Gardens in Castletownroche, near Mallow in County Cork. It may be heavy on green but it is lush and green is colourful!

And that is... lush green is one of the most welcoming color of all... and I love how many different shades of green I can see from this photo. :)

Leslie said...

Oh my - that is so beautiful. Reminds me of the scene in Room With A View where they go for a bathe...

Looks like a very peaceful spot.

What no swamp monster? I bet if we
add some shadows it can be a cryptozoologoy find.

The locals tell the tales of mythical
creatues, but they are always seen after some drinking.

I read somewhere once that looking at the colour green can actually improve your eye sight. I will stare at your pic for a while.

What a beautiful place!
Love your creative take on this week´s theme. I agree - green shades are very colourful, but so difficult to catch with the camera.
I wish you a great weekend.

What a lovely, tranquil shot - the greenery is very easy on the eye. Hope you're having a lovely weekend, and not besieged by the same vile weather I'm suffering.

Katney said...

I once described the Olympic Peninsula as---"It's so green." My professor laughed at my failure of vocabulary and declared "The green gods are smiling."

Dawn said...

Absolutely beautiful! I hope to see Ireland someday. :-)

I'm so partial to shades of green so you'll have to expect me to say "Beautiful." Happy Sunday!

RJ Flamingo said...

That is sincerely gorgeous! The hubs and I have been to Ireland twice, and never got to Cork either time. More's the pity, if this is an example of what we missed!

This shot has so many wonderful variations in light and texture, and what is it? 40 shades of green? :-)

Love it.

Why would anyone expect anything other than heavy on green from Ireland? :) It's really beautiful!
