Green: The Prime Color of the World

Middleton Place Live Oak

For most people, green is the color of nature, growth and harmony. It can also mean “go,” or “safety,” depending on its context. I personally find green to be a peaceful color, as well as a reminder of the amazing things nature is capable of.

    Wonderful images Erin. I think you just added a new location to my SC trip. Now all I will have to do is convince my wife and friends to put up with my shooting.

  2. Lovely Erin. If I wasn’t wishing or spring before I am now.

  3. Ooo, I like what you’ve done with the last few posts here, focusing on colors like that Erin! Great theme, and what a fabulous post here!!!

    Woo! To think I almost missed this one! Love the frog shot and especially the 2nd one of the palm fronds. Those are always so interesting to photograph I think. They have such a deep pleasing green. Love it!
