Spots of Colour

This week Ann-Christine gave us the prompt Spots and Dots for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before going for a walk on Sunday afternoon. The actual purpose of the walk was to continue my testing of the TTArtisan 35mm lens. But lens testing was quickly forgotten when I started looking for spots of colour.

Lens-Artists: Spots of Colour

Spots of Yellow. Having finally had a couple of days of spring like weather the Dandelions have emerged in force. It was the yellow flowers in the grass that gave me the idea for this post.

Spots of Green. Next I found these green leaves growing through the soil. I think they’re the leaves of Lily-of-the-valley.

Spots of Blue. Technically Periwinkle blue is a pastel purple. These Periwinkle flowers were the next spots of colour I spotted.

Spots of White. The final spots of colour I spotted were these White Trilliums. The provincial flower of Ontario and regarded as a sign of spring.
