The Colors of Travel: Capture the Colour Photo Challenge 2013

I'm sure many of you have seen (or even already entered) Travel Supermarket's Capture the Colour Photoblogging Competition that's been floating around blog land. I was recently tagged by Christine of Christine in Spain to participate, so I thought, what the heck...let's give it a go! The basic premise of the contest is to choose photos from your own travels that fall into the 5 different color categories of red, green, yellow, blue, and white. When I initially started combing through the mounds of photos from our travels, I basically had a panic attack. I was overwhelmed with only choosing one photo that embodied each color perfectly! Blue seemed to give me the most trouble. I even had to consult my husband a few of my favorite photography inclined friends for their unbiased eyes and honest opinions. Thankfully, I got myself together and chose what I think turned out to be a nice round-up of some of my favorite colorful photos from our jaunts all over Europe. While I'm quite positive I won't win a thing, it was definitely a fun challenge to participate in. Not only did I get to take a walk down memory lane while perusing my travel photos, I also got to see how much my photography skills have evolved over time. I only hope they continue to grow as I keep venturing out of my comfort zone both life and photography-wise. :) 

So, tell me, what are your favorites from the collection of colors below?

[Lisse, Holland -Keukenhof souvenirs]



[Santorini, Greece- sunset sail in the caldera]

[Zermatt, Switzerland- ski chalet]

The last part of the challenge was to nominate 5 other bloggers to join in on the fun. These 5 ladies below are no strangers to travel or great photos, so I hope they'll all enter as well! The contest entry deadline is October 9th, so get on it gals! :) Not nominated? No worries! You can still submit your colorful travel photos here!

I nominate:
Amanda of Living In Another Language
Chelsea of Lost In Travels
Rachel of Postcards From Rachel
Bonnie of A Compass Rose
Nicole of La Mia Vita


  1. I'm partial to the yellow but they're all beautiful!

  2. thanks so much for nominating me! I was nominated earlier and i'm so bummed that it slipped my mind so i'm so glad that you nominated me so i can finally get off my butt and get this done! it's such a wonderful idea and i LOVE the photos that you chose!

  4. Amazing pictures! My favorite is the blue! (Can you call a photo yummy?)

  5. They're all so beautiful! It's cool to see a grouping of photos by color. Each one really pops out because it's not blending in with similar pictures from the same trip.

  6. I adore them all, but the yellow one is just so incredible! Well done :)

  7. Love them all, but WHITE is my favorite!

  8. Wow! I love the green photo the best, I think. Though it's definitely hard to choose.

  9. I think my favorite is the Santorini sunset - the yellow haze you captured in the sky is just gorgeous :)

  10. Oh it would have to be white..........love the snow on the mountain and building so lovely so inviting

  11. It is so hard to pick but if I ABSOLUTELY HAD TO, my two favorites are green and blue!

  12. I noticed I was getting referrals from your site! Whooo hooo so glad I checked! How FUN! I'm totally doing this! I think my most difficult will be white. I can't WAIT to post this!

  13. I did this a few days ago as well. So much fun!! Your Greece photos are my favorites!! OOOh how I wish to one day visit Santorini!!
