#CTC13: Capture The Color.

It’s time for the Travel Supermarketโ€˜s Capture the Color photo competition 2013 edition. This year I got tagged by Karla of Traveller soul and Ted of Traveling Ted. Thanks guys!

This year I decided to find photos with the colors yellow, red, green, white and blue with a little Alaskan cruise flavor. Well without further ado:


When cruising of course you’ll see the blue of the water and the sky, but in Alaska you’re bound to see the blue of a glacier or two as well. We parked for a while at Sawyer Glacier in the Tracy Arm Fjord of the Inside Passage. Lots of staring going on. The rain jacket of the person right in front of me was a nice blue bonus.

Up-top of the Celebrity Solstice you’ll find vast green lawns to run on, play some croquet or to lay down and relax and checkout the scenery. It doesn’t get much better than the Seattle skyline staring right back at you.

If you’re not relaxing on the lawns of the Solstice you could be lying low with a cocktail at the stern of the ship. Red chairs aplenty at the outside Ocean Bar.

If the above two don’t do it for you, just find an open railing at the stern, lean forward and get a better view of the white water, a part of the ships wake. The trail is heading right for the white clouds off in the distance. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our ship was too big to dock in Juneau, so we had to take a small boat into town once in port. It was dark on the way back, so we got to see the Celebrity Solstice all lit up. Amongst all the lights is the yellow of the state and concierge rooms.

  1. Great idea to use all the pictures from one trip. Always great to buck the trend. My favorite is the blue glacier. I have never seen one in real life, so I was unaware they came in a blue hue, but it makes sense.

    • Thanks Ted! That was my favorite too. Was surprised how blue! The only other ones I’ve seen, in NZ, could only see white. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The blue one is nice!

  3. I agree… the blue one is gorgeous!

  4. Funny, I have a similar Tracy Arm glacier pic in my blog perhaps but for sure in my photography site. Wasn’t it awesome?

    • Cool beans! The ship stopped for quite some time, so was able to check it out from several vantage points. Couldn’t believe how awesome it looked up close.
