Fellow photography blogger Cee recommended me for the “Capture The Colour 2013” photo contest in her post yesterday. When I read the contest’s terms & conditions, I realized the contest was opened until October 9, 2013. That’s tomorrow, yikes! Since the contest holder is in the UK, I figured I had very little time to enter.
Here are my entries for each color theme: yellow, green, blue, red and white. I’m also supposed to recommend this contest to 5 fellow bloggers so here’s my pick. If I didn’t name you and still want to participate, you have a few more hours to do so.
- Licht Years
- Northwest Frame of Mind
- The Beauty Along The Road
- Travel and Trifles
- Clicky Chick Creates (fellow San Diegan!)

YELLOW – I took this photo of a beautiful sunflower just yesterday. This is my very first sunflower and I tried to fill my frame with it as much as I could, letting the great blue sky fill the rest.
GREEN – this photo of a raindrop on a grass blade seems to be a favorite so it was an easy choice for the green theme. I love the grass blade reflections in the raindrop.
BLUE – this was my very first dragonfly and it happened to be blue. Since then, I’ve photographed more dragonflies, all orange.
RED – I love bees and I love bottle brush tree flowers. This photo is the best of both worlds for me, and a brand new photo on this site.
WHITE – I photographed this beautiful great egret this past weekend. Such a proud bird owning the water’s edge.
WOWZA!!! Absolutely gorgeous choices!!
Thank you very much, Cee! This was a fun opportunity and I love anything to do with color.
Thank you very much!
You picked my favorite “green shot”. 🙂
I don’t think I can go wrong with that type of green shot!
Beautiful post, beautiful colors! Good luck Milka, and thanks so much for the recommendation!
Thank you very much and you’re welcome!
Great choices. Good luck!
Thank you! It was a fun photo theme to participate in for sure.

I’m smitten with the egret, Milka 🙂
I’m glad you like that proud egret!
Wow – that really is a great egret close up! Love the sunflower too.
Thank you! That egret was really something, as he eventually got in the water and started fishing. I got the opportunity to show my kids sunflowers at different stages of seeding, so they could see how they make sunflower seeds as the middle part expands a lot. I wonder if I could grow that in my backyard and the critters would leave them alone…
Stunning images! Good luck with the contest!
Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to comment!
Great photos. Really love the egret (particularly the eye).
Thank you! Egrets really have an eerie look to them.
