Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic ( Yellow Flowers )

This week’s DP Photo Challenge is Optimistic.

Frost or even snow is predicted for the next two days.

You may say this is very common; but here in a subtropical region, this is really uncommon.DSCF6060

However, I am optimistic that it will come and go away quickly, and Spring is just round the corner!

The photo was taken at Kadoorie Farm, Hong Kong.

Yellow Monday (3)

While Christmas is usually associated with the red color, some people believe Easter is related to the yellow color:  the feathers, the daffodils and the chickens on the Easter cards.
In any case, yellow is usually related to the brightness of the sun; our joy and happiness.CIMG3279

For this week, the yellow rapeseed flowers at Luoping, Yunnan are still my favorite. What a joy it was to walk among the yellow fields!CIMG3263

While many tourists just walked along the main paths, some have actually ventured into the fields. It was a bliss to be in close contact with nature !

The Yellow Fields of Spring

Spring has arrived in some areas of the northern hemisphere. Certainly, it is just around the corner for many other regions.

Our recent trip to Yunnan, China to view the rapeseed flowers was just enjoyable. Wandering in the rapeseed fields of Luoping, Yunnan was like swimming in a sea of yellow. DSCF3136

I just couldn’t help reviewing my archive to see what other pictures with beautiful views of yellow fields.

Here is one taken on the hills of Switzerland which shows yellow flowers all over the place. In the background is also green, a very frsh green which seem to announce that Spring has arrived.CIMG1724

There is one photo which I have always liked, this is the one below taken in Hokkaido, Japan which shows fields of yellow color with rolling hills as background.Hokkaido1

How enjoyable it was to be able to see endless fields of yellow color which to me represent positivism and hope. Hope you enjoy them too!
