PhotoFriday – ‘Green’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Green’

So as you may know I had a little impromptu trip to the Red Sea recently! Totally unplanned but who passes up an invitation to go out there when a space becomes available? I’m just starting to go through my photos from the week but here is one of beautiful green mermaid for this weeks (belated) photofriday theme.

EDIT: Jackie asked me to remove the photo of her so here is a green frogfish from Raja Ampat instead.

Psst… Please check out my excellent used Nikon Gear page, I’ve swapped over systems and I’m still trying to raise money on my previous gear get them now before they go.

Colour of the Year 2013: Emerald

pantone-color-of-the-year-2013-emerald

“Lively. Radiant. Lush… A color of elegance and beauty
that enhances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.”

Every year Pantone chooses its colour of the year. This year as you may already know it is Emerald. This year I’m not exactly hot off the press and I’m not the only one who uses this as an excuse to look through my photos to see what might match, see this years post from Mark Graf and Behance from earlier this month.

For those that are landlocked green is the colour of nature (for me its blue but we have to make allowances here). Emerald Green was one of my mothers favourite colours so this is a tribute post to her. I’ve tried to choose photos from my archive that I feel best show the vibrant and lively side of Emerald green….

I hope you enjoyed this green post. I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and if I don’t post again before then have a happy new year!

PhotoFriday – ‘Greenery’

Oopsie, I’m a bit late with last weeks PhotoFriday but here goes…Photo Friday entry: ’Greenery’

This week’s theme is Greenery so my first thought was of the Magroves in Raja Ampat:

which have plenty of greenery, but I wanted to introduce you to a special type of creature that mimics greenery instead. The Halimeda Crab is very well camouflaged to look like the Halimeda algae it lives in. I’ve seen these little guys in Lembeh & Raja Ampat and they are fiendishly difficult to photograph so they dont just look like leaves :)

If you want to see more of my Raja Ampat photos then check out other photos in my Raja Ampat 2009 Gallery.
