Georgia of ‘Rainbow Bakery ‘ blog, nominated me to take part in the Capture the Colour competition. The idea is quite simple. You just have to publish a blog post showcasing five of your favourite travel photographs which best capture the colour of these five categories: red, blue, green, yellow and white.
I think the deadline is tonight, so here goes with my entry.
My red photo was taken by my somewhat incredulous husband when we were on holiday in Thailand last year. Yes, that’s me up there. I don’t know quite what got into me, but I just had to do it. 🙂
My blue photo is a close-up shot of a female Cassowary at the Kuranda Bird Park in Cairns, Australia. “Here’s looking at you, mate.”
The rice terraces in Bali are the brightest green you could possibly imagine.
This yellow Orchid was one of the many gorgeous specimens at the National Orchid Garden in Singapore.
For my white photo, I chose this one taken from the pristine deck of the boat which took us out on a scuba-diving trip at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.
These are all wonderful & perfect, Sylvia! I think Blue is my favorite BUT Red gets a courtesy nod because that’s YOU up there! Bravo to you!
Thank you. Yes, I sometimes find it hard to believe that it’s actually me up there. I must have been crazy. 😀
Great selection of photo’s Sylvia. Love it! 😀 *hugs*
Thanks so much, Sonel. 🙂
They are all beautiful but I love orchids of an.y color.
Thanks, Ron. Me too. 🙂
As usual, great pictures and great choices, Sylvia. I hope you win! 🙂
Thanks so much, Marsha. Just happy snaps really. 🙂
I’m glad you are not taking unhappy snaps! 🙂
Beautiful! I’ve always wanted to try parasailing. Good for you for trying an extreme sport! 😉
Thanks so much, Ruth. It was an awesome experience, but I think once was enough. 🙂
Wow, i like your choice of photos … Especially the female Cassowary bird ! // Maria 🙂
Thanks so much, Maria. 🙂
Colors that delights the senses. Beautiful, fun, breathing adventure. Have a great day!
Thanks so much, IT. Hope you’re having a great weekend. 🙂
They’re all great and I think you’re pretty brave in that first shot, but I must say that the bird really stands out. Such fascinating looks and you captured it very well 🙂
Thanks so much, Inga. I think that was the bravest thing I’ve ever done, and it was purely on impulse. When I think about it now, I think I must have been crazy. 😀
Love your blue one the most. Very nice set, Adin.
Thanks so much, Rommel. 🙂
Love the red photo … kudos to you for going parasailing … especially in Thailand!!
Thanks so much, Lexi. I was quite amazed that I did that. 🙂
The close up shot of the bird is great!
Thanks, YC. 🙂
Thanks, Nicole. 🙂
Super images Sylvia!
Thanks, Phil. 🙂
Gorgeous pics AD!!
I’ve always wanted to do that surfing thing myself – don’t know if I’ll ever have the gumption to though 😉
Thanks, 68. Best thing is not to think about it; just do it. 😀
tutte immagini splendide, devo dirti che anche io ho volato, ma con il parapendio sulle montagne, è una sensazione incredibile, anche se da principio ho avuto male allo stomaco, e tu che sensazione hai avuto?
all beautiful pictures
I have to tell you that I too have flown, but with paragliding the mountains, is an amazing feeling, though at first I had bad stomach, and you feel you’ve had?
I loved being up there. I felt like a bird, although I was a bit worried about the landing, but it was easy. 🙂
Wow – great shots! I vote for the first one with YOU!
Thanks so much, Leya. 🙂
Thanks, Amy. 🙂
really love the ‘white’ one Sylvia…but man you took your life in your hands with the blue…those birds are vicious and so quick
Thanks, Jo. Yes, that Cassowary does look a bit dicey. 🙂
I am loving the selections I have seen by so many and yours is no exception AD. 🙂
Thanks so much, LuAnn. 🙂
Love them all. Did it feel good up there?
Thanks, Linda. Yes it did feel good up there. It was the coming down again which concerned me, but it was fine. 🙂
The bird shot is my fav … well done!
Thanks so much, Frank. 🙂
How are you so awesome? I mean how does it feel?
It feels wonderful to be awesome, Jasmine. You should know. 😀
OOH You sly thing!!! I like that!
Oh ad, you are the perfect pic for this. Your travels load you up with opportunities. Awesome!
Yes they do, Gemma. Thanks so much. 🙂
Excellent choices for this challenge
Thanks so much, Pommepal. 🙂
Nice, best of luck!
Thanks so much. 🙂
Excellent shots … for the challenge and I wish you good luck. The blue is my favorite of this great bunch.
Thanks, Viveka. 🙂
Gorgeous shots ad 🙂
Thanks so much, Hopestar. 🙂
What a fabulous cassowary shot. So clear and crisp and from such close range. Aren’t they supposed to be s bit aggressive? Very well done.
Thanks so much, Michelle. Only now you tell me that they’re aggressive?!! 😯
Well yes I was told to be careful and not to get too close. I love animals, birds, lizards, dogs…all of them. But I believe the cassowary has a rather sharp spur on their inner toe which they will use to attack both dogs and people if provoked. All’s good though as you managed to get away safely anyway! Great picture though.
Great shots, Ad, but the winner has to be that first one, just for you actually being up there! (but you’ll be disqualified- it’s your husband’s shot! Sssh- I won’t tell 🙂 )
The shot I’d most like to be in is that last one. Looks idyllic!
Thanks so much, Jo. Thanks for keeping mum. 🙂
The look of the Cassowary is priceless :D. Cool photos, Sylvia!
Thanks so much, Paula. 🙂
WOW! What a beautiful concept and photographs… Thank you dear AD, love, nia
Thanks so much, Nia. 🙂 xx
Stunning Sylvia, I love the blue cassowary 🙂
Thanks so much, Gilly. 🙂
You’ve assembled a great collection of photos here. How ever did you summon the courage to go up in the air like that? I could never do it. Not ever! 🙂
Thanks, John. Don’t ask me what possessed me to to suddenly decide to do the parasailing. I must have been crazy. 😯
Gorgeous choices. You just can’t seem to help it. 😉
Thanks, Gunta. ‘The girl can’t help it’, wasn’t that a song sung by Little Richard? 🙂
I think I’m getting too old to remember. 😉
These are beautiful… is there any colour you could not produce a photo of.??
Thanks so much, bulldog. Maybe not. 🙂
OMG I can’t believe that is you in the first picture! What a fantastic life. 🙂
Thanks so much. I also can’t believe it. 😀
Great shots Ad. You parachuted? I love the white picture the best, I can just feel the sun on my face looking at it.
Thanks so much, Georgia. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
Love them all but MOST impressed that you went sailing ! WOW! I hope that wins you a prize as it’s just inspiring ( I don’t have the guts! )
Thanks so much. I was also very impressed. 😀
Thanks so much. 🙂
These are wonderful choices for the colors. What fun.
Thanks so much, Pat. 🙂
Cheers on your parasailing!! that Kuranda though wow, just that look alone :O
Thanks, Andy. 🙂
No doubt – you get an A+ on this assignment 🙂
