After Stephen Cook nominated us for this contest, I thought it would be rude not to enter. So thank you for thinking of Enjoy The Journey Stephen!
Traveling with just a 55l backpack means there’s not a lot of room for fancy equipment so my passion for photography is very much a personal thing, a documentation of my experiences. However the Capture The Colour Contest is a little different from the usual best pic competition, in that you have to choose photos representing yellow, red, blue, green and white. This really got the imagination going and as I begun flicking through my pics, I couldn’t resist sharing some of these fabulous colourful moments…
Yellow: This was taken on Little Corn Island, which sits 50 miles off the coast of Nicaragua. It has a tiny population of 800, and has a real laid back Caribbean vibe that is second to none.
Red: A fishing boat named ‘Che Guevara’ in front of Lake Nicaragua, which plays home to Ometepe, the world’s highest lake island. It is formed by two volcanoes, Concepción and Maderas. Concepción is considered the most perfectly formed volcano cone in Central America.
Blue: Taken at the dive spot Jake’s Place in Little Corn, Nicaragua. A magical underwater world of sting rays, eagle rays, hammerheads, coral reef and beautiful multicolored fish.
Green: A red-eyed tree frog, one of natures most vivid greens and with his red eyes and green and yellow spotty belly the tree frog is native to the rainforests of Costa Rica.
Two of my favourite white photos came from San Fransisco, you decide which one’s better…
