Capture the Colour

Liberated Traveler nominated me to enter  Travel Supermarket’s photo blogging competition to capture the colour. The idea is to publish a blog showcasing five travel photographs that best capture the colour of five categories: red, blue, green, yellow and white. The second part of the competition is to nominate five fellow bloggers to encourage them to also take part. Time is running out as you have to notify Travel Supermarket by 9th October that your blog has been published. Oh, and you don’t have to be nominated to take part 🙂

Part One: My Photos

Red: Arcades in the Taj Mahal complex. The Garden-facing inner sides of the wall are fronted by columned arcades, a feature typical of Hindu temples later incorporated into Mughal mosques. They provide welcome shade from the blistering heat and blinding light.


Blue: A Tardis in Norfolk. Travelling along the North Norfolk coastal road you may be surprised to see this police box at the side of the road. Stop and take a photo by all means; a donation to ‘Help Our Heroes’ is welcomed

The Tardis?

Green: The Verdant Valley of Franschhoek in South Africa. Where the lower slopes of the mountains are covered in vineyards. More about this lovely gourmet town can be found on my Travel Words blog.


Yellow: Pena National Palace, Sintra. The palace is an example of Romanticist architecture which is an eclectic mixture of  the Neo-Gothic, Neo-Manueline, Neo-Islamic and Neo-Renaissance styles. Perched on the top of a hill this amazing structure can be seen from as far away as Lisbon on a clear day. Visit Urbanicity for more information about this palace.

White: A Dutch Reformed Church in South Africa. This lovely example of Dutch architecture with a thatched roof caught my eye in Franschhoek where a path edged with pure white Iceland roses leads you to the beautiful arched door.

I hope to see you all join in with the fun 🙂

    • Thank you. It is interesting seeing other photographers’ interpretations for this challenge. And it led me to your blog too which looks good – I will have a longer look around later.

  1. Wow, thanks so much for the nomination, Jude. I’ll try to catch up with blogging and emails this weekend, I hope!! I love your arcades at the Taj Mahal. I missed those when I was there! Lovely!

I'd like to hear your opinion
