My ‘Capture the Colour’ photos

The travel site TravelSupermarket is running a contest to ‘Capture the Colour’.

They say. ” a picture paints a thousand words. Well, rather than asking you to write a five thousand word blog post, we’re inviting you to produce a blog post with up to 5 photos that really do ‘Capture the Colour’… the 5 colours Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Red.”

I was nominated by adinparadise to do this challenge which ends on August 29th. I have to nominate 5 other bloggers, and time is fast running out. I’m even cheating a bit and copying the previous introduction from her post. (I won’t even correct to our American spelling for colors! 😉 )

First off BLUE:Clear skies and minus tide creates BLUE above and below. This was taken about a month ago at Coquille Point, Bandon, Oregon. Here’s a link to the post where it appeared among other images of very blue skies … click here

Next up GREEN:Oregon is nothing if not green. This was taken last summer on a stroll when the intense green of these cedar leaves caught my eye.

Next is YELLOW:Mustard flowers taken near Silverton State Park, Oregon this past May. They surely brightened up a rather moody overcast sky.

Then there’s WHITE:Something from the old archives….  a puff of white dandelion

and finally RED:A sea star taken the same day as the blue entry during a minus tide at Bandon, Oregon.

My five nominees for this challenge are:

    • Thanks…. as for entering: no worries, no pressure. I do apologize for such short notice with the deadline being tomorrow, but I only got the thing myself yesterday.


  1. Hey Gunta! It’s short notice and you whipped those up like a pro…I however, am a hack with a old camera. I don’t think I can get it together in time. It does make for a terrific blog post though. ( look for it in the future) Thanks for thinking of me. I think it’s a really fun idea. 🙂


    • Hey, I just figured color would be one you’d enjoy. I’m so sorry about the deadline crunch, but I only got mine yesterday, too. It helped to have stuff in the archives.

  3. So well done on the 5 colours theme, Gunta. You rose to the challenge admirably. That field of mustard gave my eyes such a shock, as I scrolled down. 🙂 Your “blue above and below” photo is just stunning too. Your sea star was a really lucky find. I love them all. Good luck for the competition.
