I was thrilled to be invited by The World Wanderer and Traveller Soul to participate in the annual Capture the Color photo essay. 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:
As the morning light drifts in after a spectacular sunrise on the hop of Haleakala, the rare silverswords are a shimmery white (with hints of green). Everyone rushes to the top to see the sunrise, but there are so many natural wonders in this beautiful national park.
It's February and we're in the heart of Ottawa... so where is the white photo of all the snow? The annual Winterlude festival celebrates all things winter and can be surprisingly colorful, as this blue shot reveals.
There's nothing like a crisp, cool, autumn day. These beautiful red maple leaves were captured north of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario, deep in the heart of the Canadian Shield. (Heading to "The Sault" yourself? You can find an awesome list of hotels here.)
At the aptly named Mustard Canyon in Death Valley National Park, subtle (and not so subtle) shades of mustard yellow permeate the rocks that towered over us.
At Creekside Estate Winery in Ontario's Niagara Escarpment, I captured this green bottle as we learned about the art of carbonation for sparkling wines. Of course, I had several samples, all in the name of 'research'! If you're inspired by these beautiful shades, you can even have your own color photo essays printed in metal prints.
Now, I pass the challenge of Capture the Color over to my colleagues!
