Capture the Colour 2013

Through September and October I’ve  had the pleasure of reading bright, colorful posts from participants in the Capture the Colour 2013 contest.  I thought this particular challenge sounded like a lot of fun but fall has been so busy I haven’t had time to check out the sponsoring website to look through the details.  This morning however the always kind Milka at recommended I submit my own photos as it is part of the submission process to suggest fellow bloggers also create new posts featuring the colors of red, blue, green, yellow and white.  Well, the contest ends tomorrow but I decided to stretch my free time a little longer and pick five photos from my archives that fit the requirements.  I hope you enjoy the colorful trip through my corner of the world.

To finish my post I would like to suggest the following five bloggers look through their archives for colorful photos.

  1. Oh my!!! These are fantastic! The Library or the red bloom in the maidenhair fern are just perfect! ENTER!!! You still have time!


  2. Now I wish I was out hiking instead of working with a finicky computer model…but alas, the bills need to be paid. Thanks for the beautiful visual break.


      1. With the government shutdown looming to close the Laboratory where I work, this was a much appreciated diversion.


      2. Oh no… the shutdown is looming over a lot of people right now, and I hope it forces many of them to really see how dangerous this kind of tactic is. We are all touched by it and not in a good way.


  3. Oh wow! Thanks for suggesting this… last week was busy I totally missed this D: I think that contest is over but I totally still want to do this anyway haha! for the fun of it. Lovely choices… wonderful idea to revisit some of the photos you’ve posted before…. My favourite is the photo for White. I can only try to imagine how exhilarating it must be to stand where you are to take that picture!! Stunning landscape! *thumbs up*


    1. Oh, I’m glad you want to give it a try! I was very last minute so I’m sorry everyone didn’t see it in time but no worries, I didn’t do a very good job of notifying you either. 🙂 Thanks for letting me know you like the white one, that was the hardest for me to decide. It was a great day on the mountain though!
