Great idea for a shot......one that I shall have to pinch for the future. Wink Simple, but very eye catching and colourful. Good title too. Well done Alison.

Hi Alison,

Seems we are on the same wavelength.  I entered a similar photo in the Daily Challenge last month.  (can't remember the day).  The theme was "circles".  So it obviously gets a "like" from me...  Smile

A bit like a spaghetti colour wheel. Smile An interesting take on the theme Alison. Very eye-catching. I wonder what it would have looked like if laid out radially like the spokes of a wheel.  Best of luck.

Hi Alison long time no hear, I am sorry but I am not to keen on your entry as it does not depict your style, I enjoy looking in on you and though I never leave a comment I sometimes get inspired by your work, as I say I don`t think this is you, hope you are well,,, Peter

Having seen that this was yours I have spent ages looking for one of your little people. Obviously they have all slipped down the tubes.

The idea is excellent, but then your mind is very switched on to macro at the moment. The colours are brilliant and complement the composition. Very slick shot and has loads of appeal. Good luck Alison
