We’ve been nominated by Miranda and Dylan from Endlessly Changing Horizon, Travel bloggers and Twitter friends, for this years Capture The Colour Contest. We’re very excited and it’s a great opportunity for us to share some of our travel experiences and our love for both photography and travel.
Travel and photography are both far more accessible hobbies now than they used to be, with flights being cheaper than ever, and technology has got to the point where everyone is a photographer if they have a phone with a good camera. With social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, everyone is in constant competition to take the best photo, which is also why some photographers use sites like Twicsy to gain more exposure. Exposure equals money, and money equals a better camera, so it’s easy to see how the world of photography has really expanded recently.
To participate, bloggers must choose their best travel photos to represent each of five colours: red, green, blue, yellow, and white. The contest is hosted by Travel Supermarket, and you can win all kinds of fun stuff. Here are our colourful captures:
This was taken on our first trip to Amsterdam In November last year, Just before Christmas, when it just started to get really cold. We took some really great shots to capture the cycling city.
After a month in Goa, I decided to go south and took a train to Gokarna. Unlike the Goan beaches, Om Beach Gokarna was so quiet and peaceful. I just love the simplicity and non-touristic notion. The sunsets as well as sunrises are just remarkable.
On My trip to South India I wasn’t planning on going to Kerala, But then a few of my travel fellows told me about this amazing place – Munnar, So I decided to go and see for myself. Munnar is a beautiful hill station, surrounded by green hills and tea plantations.
One of the best beaches I’ve been to in Goa is Palolem beach. This gorgeous bay is enclosed by a thick forest of coconut palms. Like any other place in India, you can meet here many friendly cows.
Mango Tree, Hampi is one of the best tropical restaurants I’ve ever been to in India. Fresh white curd with muzli and coconut was my everyday breakfast.
When you’re ready to share your work, all need to do is write a post, include your 5 photos and nominate 5 of your fellow bloggers. Be sure to tweet your entry to @travelsupermkt and tag the tweet with #CTC13. Good luck!!
