CFFC: Go Green

Green is one of my favorite colors. I am partial to the dark green but today the photos highlight the lighter shade of green in keeping with the theme of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week – Light Green.

Let me start with the one I am not too sure if it is light green but nevertheless a favorite color – sea green 🙂

The vastness of the sea makes me feel limitless and boundless and that perhaps is the greatness of the sea.

This view is close to what I woke up to as a child. I can still hear the whoosh of the rushing waters as it lulled me to sleep…

Enough of the maudlin stuff! On to some fun and games.

That’s what I call green on green 😀 How about some red on green?
