Brown: The Surprising Color

Two recent photo challenges have featured the color brown: Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and Ailsa’s Travel Challenge found at Where’s My Backpack.

We often associate the color brown with dullness and darkness, but look at brown in nature and see the surprising richness of the color.

All photos taken at Thousand Palm Oasis, Coachella Valley Preserve, California, 10 miles east of Palm Springs, CA. McCallum Trail, one trail in this 17,000 desert state park, leads through palm groves, swampy areas (with wooden footpaths), desert, to an exquisite oasis laden with greenery. Brown is a feature color, seconded by green. The palm trees remain in their natural state, their long fronds drying but hanging in place until they fall on their own.
