Last year I took part in the Capture the Color Photo Contest and although I did not win, I really enjoyed selecting my photos and was delighted to see that the contest is running again. Here is my entry for this year:
Easter Island, Chile: This is one of my favorite photos that I have ever taken, because I love the perspective of it. On the day that I took the tour around the island to see the Moai, there was not a cloud in the sky, which allowed for the perfect blue backdrop to photograph the giant statues.
Amazon, Brasil: My first solo trip in a country where I did not speak the language was to Brasil. I ended the unforgettable journey in the Amazon Rainforest, a place that I found to be life-changing. On one of the stops I saw thousands of green lily pads. What you cannot see in this photo were the huge black caimans swimming beneath them.
Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands: This past Valentine’s Day my husband and I celebrated in the Cayman Islands with a bottle of champagne underneath a tiki hut on the beach. We were fortunate enough to also witness an incredibly romantic yellow sunset as well.
Agra, India: This just so happens to be another one of my most favorite photos that I have ever taken. I was approaching the Taj Mahal and saw this line of Indian women in their coloful saris waiting to get inside. They really stood out against the white marble of the mausoleum.
Lhasa, Tibet: If you know anything about Tibetan Buddhism, then you would know the importance of the Potala Palace, which used to be the chief residence of the Dalai Lama. These monks gazed adoringly at it. In that moment I would have given anything to have been able to read their minds.
I also nominate the following bloggers to participate:
Side note: You do not need to be nominated to participate. You can submit an entry on your blog and then share it on Twitter with the #CTC13 hashtag. Make sure to nominate 5 other bloggers though!
