Last year, Travelsupermarket.com organized a photo competition – Capture the Color, where bloggers were asked to showcase five photographs from anywhere around the world that inspired and represents the following colors ' White, Blue, Green, Red and Yellow. It was so much fun reliving travel memories as I looked for five colors of my travels which represent my entry for last year.
This year, Travelsupermarket.com is running the same photo competition. Just like before, you just need to share five photographs inspired by the colors mentioned above. The prize for the Grand Winner is ??3000 worth of travel vouchers and each category winner will receive prizes like iPad, a Fuji camera or an Arc'teryx shopping voucher, depending on your choice.
So, without further adieu, here are my entries for the 5 categories:
This shot was taken when I visited the wonderful town of Lamayuru in Ladakh, India. Because Ladakh is located on high altitude, they say that the sky here is always blue especially during summer. The place in the picture is popularly known as the 'Moonland'. It's a peculiar but very beautiful landscape in Lamayuru. They say that the soil here resembles to that on the moon.
I saw this girl while I was in Gangtok in the state of Sikkim in India. While watching the Sikkim Spring Festival, I saw this local girl on the street wearing a bright red shoes and huge silver anklets with intricate design.
This shot was taken when I was on my way to visit Kampong Khleang, one of the floating village around the great Tonle Sap Lake in Cambodia. Most of the students here ride a bicycle on their way to their school from home (or walk for those who don't have bikes) and vice versa.
I took this shot when I visited the Golden Mountain or locally known as the Wat Saket in Bangkok, Thailand along with other bloggers. Golden Mount is a steep artificial hill inside the Wat Saket compound. The climb to the top is done by a stair case of about 300 steps. On the way up there is a wall of bells and a great view of the surrounding area. I saw this multi-faced Buddha on top of the hill.
On my second year on being on the road, I decided to go back to Laos to visit Vang Vieng. This time, I rented a bicycle to explore the town and to see one of Vang Vieng’s famous attractions, the Blue Lagoon. While I’m enjoying the magnificent view on my way to the lagoon, I saw this farmer working hard under the heat of the sun. It’s so inspiring to see him along with other farmers planting their crops in acres and acres of land. When I saw them, I realized that farmers are the most hardworking people because they have to be in the fields to endure the rainy and sunny days.
The same as last year, the last part of the challenge was to nominate 5 other bloggers to join in on the fun.
