Whether you simply love looking at travel photos or are intrigued by the chance to win £2000, I bring you five luscious travel photos from the Capture the Colour photo competition. Not sure what that is? Why head here for a full explanation. Wondering why I’ve been so quiet here lately? Head here for the not-so-cheery explanation. Couldn’t care less about competitions and have less interest in me than a mermaid in mascara that isn’t waterproof? Then head over here for more travel inspiration or, what the heck, just read on below…
Like Andi from My Beautiful Adventures, I have dreams of all the travel photographs I could have taken whilst I was in Cuba if only I’d had my current camera with me. (Kids, if you can believe it, we’re talking rolls of film and pieces of paper here.) I love this photo because it captures a sense of speed and a movement towards the future whereas most images from Havana focus on the ghosts of the past.
Growing up where I did, I too have taken my fair share of rain-inspired images. So I couldn’t help but relate to Zhu from Correr es mi Destino when she said this:

Rebecca from Tourist in Reality caught a shot of this crab on the black lava rock of the Galapagos Islands.
The Loch Ness, Scotland
And finally, who can resist the Loch Ness mystery? Thanks to Ceri from Not In The Pink for fueling my fascination with the legend…
