Colour 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!


Color of the Year 2010 Turquoise

As you may know I’m a big fan of Mark Graf’s blog:  “Graf Nature Photography | Notes from the woods” .

Every year he does a Pantone Colour Of The Year post (I loved his Mimosa post last year). Well this year the colour is turquoise. A colour dear to my heart as an underwater photographer. Check out his post here. We all need a bit of tropical cheer in this snowy weather so here is a few turquoise images from me 🙂
