There is no blue without yellow and without orange. –Vincent Van Gogh
As the dog days of winter draw to a close and daylight savings comes this weekend, it is a reminder that soon our colorless white landscape will come to an end. There is nothing more I crave this time of year than color. Any color except brown, black or white which have been the main hues here for months.
When I saw that this week’s photo challenge involves color, I was thrilled. I’ve felt so incredibly deprived these last few months that it was fun to go through my photos and search for anything the color orange. While going through my photos, I realized that I have relatively few photos that feature exclusively orange and not many more that have orange as a predominant color. That surprised me given my blog currently has over 10,000 photos stored.
It made me realize I need to search for more orange next time I’m out exploring the world. For orange is a color that invigorates, enlivens and brightens up the day. Here is a gallery of some of my favorite orange hues. Hope you enjoy!

Nicole, I see you managed to come up with a few photos featuring orange. 🙂 Hope your weekend is filled with color and soon, warmth!!
What a lovely wave of colour, Nicole! I especially love the sunsets. I feel quite left out posting black and white 🙂
Oh, shoot! Now that I see your photos, I realize I forgot some great tile roof pictures I have! Oh well, I got tired of going through all my folders looking for orange so I found a few and called it a day. Good collection you’ve got here.
Thanks! I don’t remember seeing your entry to the challenge. hope I didn’t miss it!
I post most of the Photo Challenge stuff on my photos-only blog at https://lexklein2.wordpress.com. No worries, though – they were not super special!
Cool I just subscribed! Thanks for letting me know. I also have another photo blog called TheThirdeyeworld. I’m terrible about keeping it updated though.
I love orange!
Me too! Makes me smile!
Orange was a treat for me too! Your photo collection for the theme are all interesting and showcases the beauty of this color. Love the market photos, and would not think of nuts to be in this category. The color theme all come together so nicely 🙂
Thanks Lola Jane! The orange cheered me up. Can’t what for spring!
this mask reminds me the cartoon Kung Fu Panda 🙂
These are all great photos, I’ll bet you had fun looking through your archives! My favorites are the nuts, cayenne, and the last of the smiling boy!
Thanks Marilyn! I love the adorable boy too!
A really good orange picture gallery, Nicole. I love those window balcony shots, and of course the smiley boy in the orange jersey, completely stole the show. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia! 🙂
What a great orange gallery Nicole with the perfect quote from Vincent 🙂
My pleasure Nicole
