Silent Sunday: Capture the Colour

This post is my entry to a photo blogging contest! Over at Travel Supermarket, they’re inviting bloggers to showcase their five favourite travel photos that best capture the colours red, blue, green, yellow and white. Having just spent a fun evening trawling through my still-to-be-organised, sprawling collection of images, these are my top picks:

RED: Ali Baba store in Baku, Azerbaijan

RED: Ali Baba store in Baku, Azerbaijan


BLUE: Beautiful boy at Jebel Ali, Dubai (peacocks also roam freely outside Zabeel Palace, home of Dubai’s ruler)


GREEN: Rolling mist over Snowdonia in North Wales


YELLOW: Enjoying a quiet moment with my eldest son, with the Hajar Mountains (marking the UAE-Oman border) in the background

WHITE: Faraya, Lebanon (who knew there were ski resorts in the Middle East?

WHITE: First time seeing real snow for my little (not so sure) boy, at Faraya, Lebanon. Who knew there were ski resorts in the Middle East?

The rules also state that I need to nominate five fellow bloggers who might be interested in taking part. So, without much further ado, here are five blog friends whose travel photos I’d love to see if they fancy entering:

Nappy Valley…Back to Blighty
The Hedonista
Asia Vu
G. Gardner Photography & Journalism

Good luck everyone!

    All gorgeous photos……but the Snowdonia one tugs at my Irish heart strings…..reminds me of home. Stunning.
