Wordless Wednesday (Pleasing Purple Edition)

This is Week Five of the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. This week's color is purple. 

One advantage of living in North Florida in the fall is that it is possible to enjoy outdoor activities well into the season. A couple of weeks ago, I had the physically and spiritually rejuvenating experience of doing outdoor yoga after work. The venue, a place called Lichgate, was perfect.

The Centuries-Old Lichgate Oak.

Yoga without walls.

And beautiful purple nearby:

I am not sure how this shot came to be, but I love the effect I stumbled onto:

The Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge is hosted by Kristi of Live and Love Out Loud, Alicia of Project Alicia, and Rebecca of Bumbles and Light. The challenge welcomes photographers of all skill levels. Next week's theme is brown! The linky for brown week will be up starting on Friday, November 11.

Yes, that last shot looks something of an old painting. Beautiful. Thanks so much for joining the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge!

P.S. The late hour is starting to take effect... that was supposed to read "oil" painting. (Like a canvas.) Very cool.

I love the purple against the green leaves!

Love these shots and the idea of yoga without walls! That last shot is really cool, Paula. What probably happened is your camera used a slower shutter speed and you may have moved a smidge causing it to create that effect. It definitely gives it an oil painting effect, like Alicia mentioned. :)
Thanks for joining us again in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up for our brown theme, seeing as how you're in sunshiny Florida! So jealous...
