We’ve been challenged by fellow travel blogger Heidi from Wagoners Abroad to take part in this year’s Capture the Colour competition. The task is to choose our travel photos which best capture the colours red, blue, green, yellow and white. We’ve taken over 7,000 pictures during the last six months on the road so Andrew and I ended up arguing quite a bit over which ones to choose – after much deliberation though, here are the shots we went for.
We met this colourful local at the Banaue rice terraces in the Philippines; he was keen for us to photograph him in his traditional red headdress in exchange for a few pesos.
The bluest sea I’ve ever seen was on the Gili Islands in Indonesia; even though we had a tough time while we were there, there’s no denying how beautiful Indonesia is.
We really fell for the Philippines and are already planning a return trip here early next year. The lush green Banaue rice terraces pictured below are one of the most beautiful sights I’ve ever seen.
We’ve seen some truly spectacular sunsets during our travels but this one we witnessed in Kuching, Malaysian Borneo, was one of our favourites.
We took this shot on an eco-cycling tour in Bali; we had breakfast overlooking this spectacular view of Mount Batur draped in white fluffy clouds.
Our Capture the Colour Nominations
So, now it’s our turn to nominate five bloggers to take on the Capture the Colour challenge – we can’t wait to see what these guys come up with:
What do you think of our photo choices?
