The lovely Jessica from Ways of Wanderess recently tagged me in Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour Contest 2013, which challenges bloggers to feature 5 photos that best capture the colours of red, green, yellow, blue and white. You can find more information on how to enter the Capture the Colour competition here.
So here are my entries:
Monks and nuns with ruby red robes can be seen all over Kathmandu, Nepal. I took this photo of a Buddhist nun at Swayambhunath, also known as the Monkey Temple. She was completely unfazed by what was going on around her and was 100% concentrated on reading her prayers. I also love her matching Kipling backpack. 🙂
I took this photo in the beautiful Ecuador. Although I feel a bit sorry for the poor mule, there are so many different shades of green in this picture that I had to choose it for my green entry.
How could I not include my beloved Cambodia in this competition? The photo was taken the day after a heavy cyclone hit Cambodia’s coast in Sihanoukville. Everything seemed devastated and grey, but this splash of colour literally brightened up my day.
This is the magical Red Flute Cave in Guilin, Southern China. I took the photo on our honeymoon. The limestone cave is over 180 million years old. It is filled with hundreds of stalagmites and stalactites that are lit up with this amazing blue light. It was discovered in the 1940s by a group of refugees fleeing Japanese troops.
May I introduce you to perhaps the fluffiest animal in the world? This is a baby blue-footed Boobie, which I had the pleasure of seeing during a trip to the Galapagos Islands. As the name suggests, these birds have blue feet once they grew up and the males display their feet in an elaborate mating ritual to impress the females. Kinda like wearing fancy shoes, I guess.
Now it’s my chance to nominate five people to share their colourful travel photography for Capture the Colour 2013:
