Shades of autumn–yellow

I arrived in Nepal at the end of the Dashain festival so was treated to lights and decoration everywhere.  The festival is the biggest of the year and when many people make their annual trip to visit family.

I was on the lookout for yellow as the shades of autumn colour this week and found plenty in the special decorations – yellow and orange flowers are used to decorate the temples.  Interesting to see that yellow is associated with celebrations at this time of year in other cultures too.

The ‘web board’ is again the Coffee Shop Blog.

I’ll share some more photos from Nepal over the rest of the week.
