After participating in last year’s Capture the Color contest, I was thrilled to hear that Travel Supermarket was bringing it back, especially because over the last year, my photography skills have significantly improved. I was nominated by my good friend, Francesca, at The Working Mom Travels, and you can see her beautiful photos here.
The rules for the contest are simple, post five photos that embody five different colors, and some pretty fantastic prizes are up for grabs, including the grand prize of a £3,000 travel fund. At the end, I’ll nominate five more bloggers to take part in the contest. Here’s my entry:
After a long morning diving with Great White sharks, the driver of our van, who was taking us back to Cape Town, spotted whales in ocean. While we were able to see them, capturing them in a photograph was a bit impossible. Still, the water and sky were so beautiful that day, that I’m so glad we stopped to enjoy it before heading back on the road.
While floating down the Nile River in a felucca last summer at sunset, I was struck with all the beauty that was around me. One of my favorite sights was this bird among the greenery. The lush river valley was a contrast to the usual yellow sand I had seen throughout my time in Egypt.
While visiting Montréal’s Botanical Gardens this August, I was drawn to the beautiful flowers and set on capturing the perfect photograph. I sat for a while by a small garden and was able to capture this bee on a red flower, and it became one of my favorite photos of the day.
On my first full day in Santiago, Chile, I headed up Cerro San Cristobal to see one of the best views of the city. The statue of the Virgin Mary is what brings many people to the top, and while I’m not religious, it was impressive, and I found myself being draw in by her.
These lion cubs in Zimbabwe were absolutely adorable. On my first full day in Victoria Falls, I had the opportunity to walk with them, and it was one of my favorite experiences abroad. We had the chance to pet them and walk with them; I loved being able to get up-close and personal with these majestic animals.
