Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Reds and Greens

This week Cee indicated we can choose Reds or Greens or Both for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Reds and Greens

While I like reds but I also like greens, however, a mixture of reds and greens will be more interesting. I have therefore chosen something with both red and green from nature.DSCF2563

The first picture was taken while travelling to HuangLuo temple, Beijing earlier this year when maple leaves hanging down from a red wall were partly green and partly red. The mix of colors remind me of the coming Christmas. . . . . . . . .  . .hope this serves as an electronic Christmas card to you all,  Happy Holidays to you!!CIMG2759

The second picture was taken in the BaiWang Shan park, Beijing at about the same time of the year when we were strolling through the narrows paths in the park. Again the leaves exhibited both colors.DSC_0209

The third picture was taken a few years ago in Shirakawa-go, Japan.  While all three photos are reds and greens, the shades of the colors are different and they convey a different atmosphere.DSCF6031

Back in Hong Kong, although winter has set in, many of the vegetation is still having a green color. This contrasts quite sharply with the red flowers which sprung up from their almost bare stems.  Reds and greens, I like both of them mashing in together!
