Capture the Colour 2013 – Photo Contest

Being the procrastinator of all times, I had been putting off to compile my selection of the photos for the “Capture the colour” Contest. The task was to choose one picture for each color, which was tough, given that I had such a big collection, and it is too tempting to add more! It was a good lesson for once, only to include the best (in my opinion), you learn to consider different aspects – and have fun in the end!

Below, is my collection, hope you will like them! Please do leave comments, to let me know your feedback!

If you want to participate in the contest, here is what you need to do – any one (travel blogger) can join!
1) Post up to five colour travel photographs on your blog from the following five categories: red, yellow, blue, green and white. The deadline for submission is 9th October 2013!

2) Nominate five other bloggers to follow on from you

3) Notify the team that you’ve entered (see instructions on how to do that here.)

My favourite choice for each colour



Tagines, Souk of Marrakech

Tagines, Souk of Marrakech

Blue is my favorite color, esp. this rich royal and Morrocan blue!




White in white: The floral carvings on the walls of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi. This is one of my favorites for the category white. Needless to say, it was difficult to limit oneself to this one picture!



Parfait: Saffron

Among many yellows, it was the the rich yellow of this Saffron Parfait, which made it to my favorite for the category yellow



Patiio festival in Cordoba

The inner courtyards of the Zoco Artisan Market in Cordoba.

The red Geraniums in Cordoba, like Petunias in all colors, decorate the walls and floors of the patios, opened up to public to enchant the visitors. I chose the rich red of these Geraniums to participate in this contest.






No, I couldn’t find any other candidate for green than this rich green guy!
