Lens Artists Photo Challenge #98: delicate colors

In deciding to answer this challenge from the desert, I realized that a great many of desert colors are bright and vibrant. I guess they have to be to stand up to the bright sunshine. It wasn’t easy to find delicate colors. Here are a few, although the first one makes it obvious that delicate and soft or gentle aren’t necessarily the same. 🙂

    It’s beautiful, but it looks otherworldly.

    Those Are gorgeous shades of purple.

    That first photo, especially, is a killer. I’ve never seen nopales with those little artichoke-like growths on them.

  4. I like the first one!!

  5. Sue says:

    Interesting selection, Janet!

  6. Leya says:

    Very special, Janet! The first one looks surreal…like you had painted it and decorated it yourself!

  7. pattimoed says:

    Lovely, gorgeous colors, Janet. I especially love your first shot. Great perspective.

  8. JohnRH says:

    Beautiful. I like the cactus.

  9. Beautiful. Especially that cactus

  10. Tina Schell says:

    I guess we’ll have to do a vibrant colors challenge soon Janet. Like you I found delicate colors a bit hard to find. That said, yours are quite beautiful

  11. Amy says:

    A beautiful set of delicate colors! Great selections.

  12. Su Leslie says:

    These are all lovely Janet

    I had the same experience. Contrary to popular belief our deserts are quite colorful. I love your choice of the Santa-rita cactus perfect.

    • Thanks very much. Certainly a different beauty and color palette in the desert. The other two images are also from the desert in the backyard of our house. The pink is a macro of a torch cactus bloom.

        Oh, nice. stumped me. The cactus blooms always feel like such a gift. I guess kind of like crocuses in other parts of the country. Donna

      • 🙂 The torch cactus has bloomed three times–to welcome us to Arizona, I think. Having lived in the Midwest my entire life (with stops in Colorado and summers in Wyoming) it’s a very different experience. So far, so good 🙂

        I can relate. we lived in Yellowstone for two years and then came to AZ. I killed so many plants the first year (and I am a Master Gardener in 2 other states. lol). but I think I finally have it figured out. Donna

      • Oh, yes, gardening…in “soil” that’s a mix of cement and rock, I think. 🙂 Just because Lowe’s has plants out doesn’t mean it’s the best time to plant them, as I found out the hard way already. 😉 But we’ve only been there two months, so I’ll get there.

      • Wind Kisses says:

        lol. you will.

  14. Lovely shades of purple, Janet. Made me remember how my mom was so fond of wearing these colours.
