Capture the Colour is a travel photography contest being run by Travel Supermarket. I first heard about it when one of the judges, pro photographer Ken Kaminsky, wrote about it. A couple of days later I was nominated to participate by Caz and Caroline over at YTravel Blog. Thanks guys!
These are some of my best photos. If you like them, please share them with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest. Enjoy!

As part of the contest, I’m supposed to nominate five more bloggers to take part in the contest. My nominations are:
Ava Apollo – A master of humour and sarcasm. I don’t know how well she handles a camera, but now we’re going to get to find out.
Nomadic Samuel – I don’t think I know anyone with more travel photos than this guy. I’m looking forward to seeing what he comes up with.
Will Peach – The man behind the Gonzo Traveler. He’s crazy. I’m willing to bet that at least one of the photos will be a nude — of himself.
Rhonda Mix – This professional writer and former expat is a friend from my days in Taiwan. She now lives in the midwest, but I think she’s going to snap and run away soon.
Brian D’orr – A competitive kayaker and published sports photographer who is serious about adventure — so serious that he poured his savings into a giant live-in four-wheel-drive van that goes everywhere. Looking forward to seeing what he comes up with.
