For this year’s Capture the Colour contest, I am focusing on the colours of Morocco.
Red is found throughout the rusty landscape, but also in the brilliant dyes that enliven the leather goods for which Fes is famous.
Blue is everywhere in Essaouira, but especially on the fishing boats that bob in the harbor on a calm day.
Green is found throughout Morocco, in both the architecture and the rolling hills surrounding Meknes and Fes.
Yellow is scarce beyond the flowers that brighten rural pastures, but it does appear in brief flashes as people go about their day, as with this man examining sheep in a rural market.
White is the color of the tiled courtyards and ancient walls of Essaouira, but most of all, it is the color of the ever-vigilent sea gulls that patrol the harbor.
Capture the Colour is travel blogging contest run by the Travel Supermarket. The contest requires publishing a blog post showcasing five travel photographs that capture the colours red, blue, green, yellow, and white.
I was excited to get nominated by Leigh from Bike Hike Travel because she’s a good photographer and I need that push to put an entry together. I also like the fact that entering gave me an excuse to spell “colour” the way I always thought it should be spelled (lover of English literature that I am). Besides, it is a good excuse to showcase a few of my (mostly yet unedited) Morocco photos!
I’m supposed to nominate five bloggers . . . but the contest is almost at an end and it seems as if everyone has already entered! If you have travel blog – consider yourself nominated and get your entry in quickly!
