As avid travelers and relative newbies to the world of travel blogging, it was a complete surprise yet wonderful honor when we received a nomination from Pedro Richardson (@Ped_Richardson) from Travel With Pedro to take part in Travel Supermarket’s Capture the Colour 2013 photo contest.

I have always been a keen photographer, going back to the days of taking photography as a class in college along with trying to capture those vivid, memorable images whilst on vacation. Traveling so much with my husband, we have always felt that our best memories and travel souvenirs are our photographs. Of course there are always challenges involved such as trying to capture that perfect shot or sifting through hundreds of similar images to find ‘the one’ that provides those idyllic memories, but that’s just part of the excitement and enjoyment of photography.

Ok, so let’s get on with our participation of this challenge but first a quick breakdown of what this contest entails:

1. Submit one photo of each of the following colours that you consider to best match that particular contrast: Red, Green, Yellow, White and Blue.

2. Spread the word and nominate 5 of your fellow bloggers to take part.

3. Let ‘Travel Supermarket’ know by either tweeting ‘My entry for #CTC13 @travelsupermkt (INSERT URL HERE)’ or e-mailing them at [email protected].

4. Keep an eye on Travel Supermarket’s Twitter account when they announce the winners.

Here are the full rules and regulations: Travel Supermarket Capture the Colour 2013

I am sure you are all wanting to know what you can win! The five individual colour catagory winners will receive either an iPad, a Fuji camera or an Arc’teryx shopping voucher (entirely the winners choice which they prefer!) along with one overall winner of the Grand Prize – a £3000 travel fund.

Without further ado, here are our entries and we appreciate any feedback you have on these!

  1. This is really neat! I love the idea behind this photo contest, as well as your picks for entries. I think you’ve captured the essence of each colour very well. Good luck with the contest!

    • As I mentioned above, we were really excited when nominated for this particular contest! We really appreciate your kind remarks regarding our photos. We had so many to choose from and one of the difficulties is trying to decide which one to go for on each color. For us, yellow was probably the most difficult color. We initially wanted to go with someone away from the norm of sunrise or sunset but we just felt the one above captured a perfect image of our current surroundings and it is just so relaxing.

      Are you taking part in the contest?
