Your pictures: Red

Rose hip

This delightful picture of rose-hips by Silvia Wilczek launches the first of a series of readers’ galleries focusing on colour. The theme here is red, the next will be blue.

Red balloos

Muhammad Farooq Khan: "Roadside vendors with red balloons at a busy road in Karachi, Pakistan."

Wall of lights

Paola Querin sent this from Madrid: "The night was unusually cold and many people were in front of this wall of warm and red lights."

Wall in Beijing, China

Thomas Davies: "This is a shot I took while in Beijing. Red is a lucky colour in China, so there is a fair bit of it around."

Portrait in red

Cheryl Matthews: " I was sitting around in a light box while helping my boyfriend with the lighting for a talent show and there was a red light on the desk."

Red leaves

Lorraine Phillips: "A praying mantis egg found amongst the red leaves in my back garden."

Steven Crawford spotted the red shutter on this shop in Paisley.

Cheryl Pulford: "This was a macro shot of some red autumn leaves in Kew Gardens in October. It was a gorgeous day, the sky was bright blue and the sun shining through the leaves was beautiful."


Sophia Hassou focused on a pair of hands decorated with henna.
