Weekly Photo Challenge: Hue


In approaching this challenge I just looked at how we approached the color palette for our remodeled master bedroom.  The room has numerous french doors and windows looking out at our backyard which backs up on Balboa Park in San Diego.  As you can imagine, green is the dominant color and then it is accented by some amazing built-in wood furniture that we had custom made for the room.  Although it is a small room in has the feel of the great outdoors.  Looking around the rest of the house, the theme is the same, greens and browns accentuated by wood accents – all very natural feeling.  So I started to look for a photo also reflecting that theme and it became very easy as I had one of my favorite photos from our recent trip to Alaska on my desktop.  The out-of-the camera version of this photo had very vivid greens from the sedge field that I wanted to tone down a little.  To do that, I surrounded the adorable subjects of the photo with a white vignette.  Interestingly, it very closely matches the colors in the room I am sitting in as I write this….

    • Ann Christine – looks like you love travel and nature as I do. From your blog I couldn’t tell where are from – I saw one reference to Scarborough – that’s not the Scarborough in South Africa is it?

      • Thanks! I visited Stockholm (beautiful city) a few years back but unfortunately haven’t had the opportunity to see more of your country.

      • Oh, you’re so welcome back. Maybe not as wild as your country, but very crisp air and endless trails and mountains.I think you would enjoy it.

        If you want true beauty beyond measuring…just across the border you will find Norway. The gem of Scandinavia. They have got the fiords that we don’t.

  9. That photo is so incredibly sweet! Great capture! And your colors are lovely – I’m sure your room is fantastic. I adore BP, so your view must be amazing! I’ve taken many photos there and even had my wedding photos there many, many years ago : ) Hi from a fellow San Diegan!
