Rejoice with Colour

By midgemckay
"I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns." -Sir Winston Churchill

The fifth in the series of Photos of Shawhead. This photo is of a nut and bolt in a gate post. I got the sense that it had been there for a while - rustic fails to describe itSmile

Believe it or not, this photo has hardly been altered. When I photograph colourful items I tend to add +1 to the saturation and contrast. The metal was so colourful, and in the early morning light it took on fabulous golds, browns and purples. The focus was actually on the point where the washer met the wood, and I wish now I'd taken more photos!

The colours were too good to pass up though. There is certainly nothing drab! If you look closely you can just make out a silk line from a spider who obviously got up a little earlier than meWink

I hope Sir Winston Churchill would have found this pic agreeable.
