Thematic Photographic 392 - Colors of the rainbow

Ripe for the taking
London, ON
November 2016
As I left the house for work today, I felt blanketed by the steel-grey sky overhead, the dark clouds gathering steam on the western horizon and the general sense of gloom that's been painting life a relentless shade of monochrome for the better part of the past few weeks.

By midday, the sun peeked out for a few minutes and painted the landscape an entirely different set of vibrant shades, but it was strictly temporary, and the sky was soon once again covered up with a thick layer of color-robbing cloud.

Which spawned an idea: Let's use photography to inject some color into an otherwise color-challenged season. It's out there, only it's up to our creativity to find it. Yes, I am just that much of an optimist.

Which brings us to this week's Thematic theme...

Your turn: Take a photo that supports this week's theme, colors of the rainbow. Post it to your blog, website, social media presence or anywhere else you might hang out online. Or find a pic you've already posted - whatever's easiest. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it, and drop by other participants, too. Feel free to share again throughout the week. If you're new to Thematic, here's the lowdown. Thanks for keeping the colors flowing at a time of year when it isn't always as colorful as we'd like it to be.

We're hoping for some steely gray skies, and maybe some rain...
This recent post of mine doesn't have all the colors of the rainbow, but it sure has some beautiful colors...
