Weekly Photo Challenge: Saturated

Michelle W. challenged contributors to show something saturated:

This week, show us a photo of whatever you’d like, but make sure it’s saturated. It can be black and white, a single color, a few hues, or a complete rainbow riot; just make sure it’s rich and powerful.

I chose to use a few pictures that were taken shortly after my purchase of a Pentax K-x at our favorite Florida beach spot. Experimenting with the high-contrast on filter, here are a few examples of saturated hues:

Foot in WaterDuring the same trip, I took a picture of my foot in the water… truly saturated! Looking forward to getting my feet in that water real soon.

A team from our church recently returned after a week of extending love and care in Guatemala City ghettos and orphanages. On their first Sunday back in church after the trip, one of the young adults asked if they could sing “How He Loves Us,” a song that became their theme for the week. Written by John Mark McMillan and perhaps better known by the David Crowder Band recording, it has long been one of my favorites. The line that captures my heart says, “If His grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking.” I am grateful for the all-surpassing, all-saturating, thoroughly cleansing grace of God. 

For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift.   Ephesians 2:8 (HCSB)

    • Thanks for your kind words! Enjoyed your “Good Morning” pictures, especially the sunrise shots. The thing I like about these photo challenges is that it connects people from all over the world and gives an opportunity to experience (vicariously) some things I may never be able to see or do. Thanks for sharing some of your Thai experiences.
