I enjoy both color and looking at wonderful photographs so when I first heard about TravelSupermarket’s Capture the Colour competition I was excited to see all the beautiful photographs that would be submitted. Then Vi at Short Travel Tips suggested I enter and I thought “Yeah sure”! A little later I got the official invite from the good folks at EasyHiker and Eurotravelogue. Now I couldn’t ignore my friends so I decide to give it a try!
So here are some of my favorites shots and entry into the Capture the Colour competition. . . Enjoy!
Mittenwald Germany is known for it’s beautiful painted facades. The paintings have all kinds of colors in them -red, green, yellow and white – but not much blue. I finally found one that had blue in it and it’s on one of my favorite streets!
While visiting the Hofburg in Innsbruck I found a real resemblance to my own personal home so I had to share my favorite golden chandelier!
Do you have pictures you just love but don’t really know why? Well, this is one of those for me. While wandering Vienna Austria I ran into this lovely statue who’s motto is “By Virtue & Example”. That is one of the definitions of white, isn’t it?
In Paris, one of my favorite spots is Montmartre. Red seems to be the color of Montmartre from the Moulin Rouge to the easels of the artists!
From the dramatic Alps to these beautiful rolling hills, Switzerland is one beautiful country! Plain and simply, I love this picture. Taken as I was walking up the hill to Gruyeres Switzerland, this photo can make me feel calm on the craziest of days!
There you have it, my entry into the Capture the Colour contest! Here are five more nominees whose photo’s I’d love to see!
