Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid – Natural and Manmade (9 Images)

This week’s DP photo challenge is “vivid”. Nature offers many vivid scenes and creations, and man can create a few too…so I rummaged my photo archives and selected a few images that represent “vivid” to me.

First a few images presented by Mother Nature:

This feral Nanday Parakeet has vivid green feathers…
gulf sunset vivid
The Gulf offers vivid sunsets on most nights…
hibiscus  closeup vivid
And a vivid hibiscus flower beautifies the garden…
roseate spoonbill vivid
…talking about vivid, one cannot leave out the hot pink Spoonbill.

And then a couple of vivid pieces of art, obviously manmade:

wolf and the moon sand festival vivid
Vivid colors light up this sand sculpture…
fire horse at Dali Vivid
Everything about this “fire horse” at the Dali Museum is vivid…
…and to complement the art inside the museum, this vivid dolphin sculpture lights up its garden.

To close this post on a humorous note, I’d like to present an image that combines natural and (wo)manmade vividness. Perhaps a trending, new hairstyle for this summer?

You will find other responses to this challenge here.

I’ll be taking a short vacation in a place where I hope to get some interesting photos, but that also coincides with a musical performance of four very vivid old men. There’ll be a scheduled post around mid-week to update everyone on the latest developments around the salt marsh. And I’ll try to be online some mornings and evenings to visit your blogs, otherwise will be catching up next week.  Have a beautifully vivid week!
