Capturing the Color of My Travels.

Thank you to Pola of Jetting Around for tagging me to take part in the TravelSupermarket’s “Capture The Colour” photo contest. It’s a great way to look at and find photos you’ve taken that are dominated by a single color. Prizes are offered, but reliving travel memories is the biggest reward.

Blue

Capturing the Color Blue - California PCH

When I think blue, I immediately think of water and the sky. What better place to find both of  these then the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) in California. A sunny day and the Pacific Ocean, what more can you ask for?! Photo was captured in southern California near Malibu.

Green

Capturing the Color Green - Auckland, New Zealand

Just north of Auckland you’ll find lot’s of green in the hills of Shakespear Regional Park. A country feel right outside the city. When you run into lot’s of green in New Zealand chances are you’ll see lot’s of sheep too. Get a closer look at the greenery and sheep.

Yellow

Capturing the Color Yellow - Ludington State Park, Michigan

That circular ball of yellow, the sun, goes below the horizon everyday to the West wherever you are at. Who doesn’t love a sunset? It’s even better when it’s over water, like this shot from Lake Michigan at Ludington State Park in Ludington, Michigan.

White

Capturing the Color White - Siesta Key Beach, Sarasota, Florida

The cool, white sand of Siesta Key Public Beach in Sarasota, Florida is the first thing that came to mind with this color. One of the more popular, well-known and award-winning beaches in the United States. This gem along the Gulf of Mexico is a must visit. Checkout Florida: Siesta Key Beach and Village.

Red

Capturing the Color Red - Holland Lighthouse, Michigan, Big Red

Arguably the most well-known lighthouse along Lake Michigan in Michigan is “Big Red”, which sits opposite Holland State Park along the Holland Channel. Have always enjoying my time here no matter the season. Checkout Michigan: Holland State Park and the “Big Red” Lighthouse.

Now’s the fun part. I’d like to tag two fellow bloggers to take part in this great exercise. Your it!

  1. Love those Lake Michigan sunsets.

  2. Aaron, you’ve included some of my favorite places – California’s PCH and Michigan. Come to think of It, I did take the road north through Malibu and chances are I drove close to the spot in the first picture. 🙂

    • Both great spots! It was right near Malibu so I’m sure you did. 🙂 Love the scenery as soon as you get on the PCH in Santa Monica. Lot’s of movie scenes have been shot in that stretch.

  3. I like that sunset and the kiwi sheep!

  4. Niceeeee 🙂 !!!
    Also thanks for stopping by!
