Capture The Colour Photo Contest 2

August 19, 2013

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.

If you would like to enter the contest, please visit’s rules.

I also nominate the following bloggers to participate:

Alex in Wanderland

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!

    The Easter island shot is my favorite pic that you’ve taken. And my baby pics of course!! What a fun contest. I’ll look into my pics as well. I don’t have 5 bloggers to nominate but I’ll try :))

    I think the white is spectacular! I love how even though all those beautiful and bright saris are in the photo, the white is still predominant.
    Love your photos, Andi. I loved participating in this last year as well. Going through photos like this is so fun!

    Really great photos. I’ll make you a winner today. Being serious. Travelling is nothing without a camera to capture those moments.

    I am considering my own competition where readers will rate images. The idea came to mind when I saw this great wordpress plugin called “Hot or Not”.

    Just to get involvement we could have rated your images for fun sake 😉

    Have fun

      Thank you for your kind words, they mean so much to me! I’m heartbroken that when I went to India I went with a crappy camera. I think about the shots that I could have gotten now with my present camera and it kills me! Guess I just gotta go back!!! How awesome that you were at the Taj just 3 months ago!

    I’ve never heard of this type of contest before, but it’s got to be one of the most fun and creative contests I’ve ever heard and seen! The pictures are so pretty, and I do hope you win this time around 🙂

    Your blog is absolutely wonderful. I just subscribed to it! Keep the beautiful posts coming 🙂

    Wonderful! I especially love the Easter Island photo (a place I would LOVE to see one day!) and the India photo. However, the details in the green one are amazing, and I love that it’s from Brasil. 🙂

    Wow, great images and colors, the compositions are beautiful. My favorite would have to probably be blue because of your cool perspective.

    I’m inviting you to join us for Travel Photo Mondays, the link runs all week so I hope you can join us for the next installment?
