For this week's FriFotos: ORANGE

If you're interested in travel, photography, and travel-photography, Twitter's #FriFotos chat/forum/photo-share is probably already a weekly ritual... 
(For more info: check out this.) 
Anyone is welcome to participate...

...and since this week's theme (announced on Tuesday) is going to be "ORANGE," these scenes from the past few years come to mind:

From this past winter,
a foggy sunrise over the Grand Canyon:

sunset behind Point Loma,
from Coronado Island, California


...to something man-made,
spotted near the Canal St.-Martin in Paris last summer:

windows outlined in orange
in the Château de Chambord, France:

the glorious stained-glass ceiling
of the Palau de la Musica Catalana, 
Barcelona:

...back to nature, the orange glow of a summer evening 
on the Canal de Midi in the South of France:

...and the Volcán de Agua throwing its shadow
into the sky to the west of Guatemala City:




From this summer, on Korea's Ulleung-do island,
(the most beautiful island you've never heard of)
the distinctive local "hobakmakgeolli" ale,
brewed from rice and pumpkin:

...a brightly jacketed senior citizen swinging 
through some morning calisthenics
near a riverside market in Jeonju, S. Korea:

...a 'guardian dragon' on the ceiling of the gateway 
of the old South Gate leading into downtown Seoul:

...looking up through some of the lanterns
at Jogye-sa temple in central Seoul:


...and back home to Tucson,
one of the adobe Sonoran-style row-houses in the Barrio Viejo:

the desert in bloom: poppies in spring after the winter rains,
Catalina State Park:

summer--Mexican-red-bird-of-paradise in bloom:

 ...fishhook barrel cactus in bloom,
adding some color in late summer:

autumn in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, northern edge of Tucson:

...and the fall color lingering into December along desert creeks,
cottonwoods along Sabino Creek:

Sunset from Gates Pass,
beetle on a jojoba leaf:
