I love taking photos of colourful things on my travels, so I trawled through my albums and this is what I came up with!
I just happened to be in the right place at the right time for this shot. My friend Lindsay took me to see Multnomah Falls in Oregon, and we were hiking up to the top when we saw a sign saying the trail was partly closed because of a landslide. We turned around and it started to rain…so we found ourselves at the end of the rainbow!
I’ve never seen water bluer than the water in Montenegro. This was taken from the island of Sveti Stefan on the Budva Riviera. Montenegro surprised me in every way- the water is so sparkly it looks as if fairy dust was sprinkled all over it!
This is the Pena Palace which sits high up on a hill in Sintra, Portugal. I took a day trip from Lisbon to Sintra, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been the summer residence for Portugese kings and aristocracy for hundreds of years. Home to 19th century Romantic architecture, brightly coloured palaces, mansions, castles and parks- Sintra is like something out of a fairytale. The Pena Palace is a great example of Romanticism in architecture and has beautiful yellow domes and walls.
This is the Red Bridge in Wroclaw, Poland. I love the fact that when I shot this, a woman on a red bike with red hair cycled across it! Pure fluke.
On my trip around Slovenia I visited the Lipica Stud Farm, where they breed these beautiful white Lipizzaner horses. To me they look so ethereal and graceful.
The 5 people I am going to nominate to enter the competition are:
Johnny Ward from OneStep4Ward
Rob from Stop Having a Boring Life
Abby Tegnelia from The Jungle Princess
Paul Dow from TravMonkey
Alex Berger from Virtual Wayfarer
