Capture the Color Contest 2013

I am participating in an exciting and creative contest sponsored by Travel Supermarket. The challenge is to present my favorite travel photos which best depict the five color categories: red, blue, green, yellow and white. What a fun task and a true curatorial test of one’s image library. Thank you Kenneth at Eye Ken See for nominating me.



This magical morning in Aspen hiking below Maroon Bells was a wonderful photography experience. The stillness of the day provided a perfect mirror on the lake of the mountains and lush greenery.

The phenomenal blue ice of Grey Glacier in Southern Patagonian Chile is a wonder.  This formation was nature’s way of saying, “Please come in!”

The Yellow Mounds in Badlands National Park in South Dakota are incredibly beautiful. The deep yellow color of the hills are a surprising contrast to the rest of the park.

People taking a moment to enjoy a sunny day. That is one of life’s simple indulgences. I shot this in a park in Vienna, Austria. This group was completely restful in a bustling public park. I felt envious and amused.

Charleston, SC is full of architectural gems. I love to stroll the streets of the city photographing the antebellum homes and the historic churches. On this particular day, the light and shadows played on this vibrant church door with its characteristic iron hardware.

I would like to acknowledge five bloggers (honestly, there are so many it is really difficult to choose).

I’ve enjoyed the images of these photographers immensely. Thank you to all the bloggers and photographers who continually inspire me.
