Colour Photo Essay

Last week on #TRLT Twitter chat we discussed COLOR! Due to it’s visual nature, I felt the best way to capture this topic was with a bright and captivating photo essay from around the world. Let me take you through the emerald, horse fields of Mongolia, past the splash of florescent yellow blooms dotting the Amazon Rainforest, dive into a tense World Cup final while dressed all in rich Dutch orange cheering for your team, and then I’ll let you relax in front of a fiery sunset in the Sahara desert.

Uzbekistan

Hand crafted, patterned mosaic tile work on one of Uzbekistan’s many historic wonders that was already standing when Genghis Khan arrived to conquer in the 1200s.

Alkmaar NL

Soaking up spring in Alkmaar, The Netherlands where the tulips are your neighbours.

Peru

The Poor Man’s Galapagos, a series of craggy rock formations inhabited by expat Galapagos feathery and scaly creatures. – Peru

Jamaica

While bamboo pole rafting down Jamaica’s river we stop for a quick drink at Tarzan’s abandoned restaurant

Kyrgyzstan

From so high up, it’s almost a moonscape, this river carves its way down to sea level through the mountains of Kyrgyzstan.

India

Pick a dye. Any dye! Life in India is transformed by stunning colors. Because they celebrate a new holiday every few days, floral colors are available everywhere in India for their lively festivals.

Jodhpur India

Drop-dead, cloudless blue washes over a neighborhood in the Blue City of Jodhpur, India.

Austria

This lonely cabin in an isolated outpost guards an empty field in the mountains of Austria. Even color doesn’t stop to visit, nor do we.

Suriname

The slippery mud, constant downpour and miserable damp in the Surinamese Rainforest can’t erase my smile or the pure joy of just being there.

Danakil Depression Ethiopia

It looks like scrambled eggs at the putrid sulphur lakes of Danakil Depression Ethiopia.

Domican Republic

One hasn’t lived until they’ve spent their 80th birthday parasailing over the mirrored waters in Dominican Republic. We salute Oma Maria.

Gabon

The sun slips between the covers in a magnificent display of power on the abandoned coast of Gabon.

DRC

The great blue hope for our future worn by uniformed school children in Democratic Republic of Congo.

Mongolia

I learned the definition of freedom atop a magnificent horse dashing across the endless fields making up 60% of Mongolia.

Swiss Alps

Waking up in the morning to breaking off an icicle treat to suck on under the famous peaks of the Swiss Alps.

BC Canada

Serene moment in a sliver of orange in British Columbia, Canada the only sound being the thrashing of a fish at the end of the line.

Hagia Sophia Turkey

The immensity, the color and the spirituality within the living walls of Hagia Sophia, Istanbul overwhelmed me. I never wanted to leave.

Mauritania sunset

As the world quiets and a creamy guava curtain of clouds spreads across the Sahara sky, I’m reminded of the color blessings gifted to me by every country that I pass through. -Mauritainia

Holland

On site while starring in a commercial, I tip-toed through the suds on the endless stretches of beach along the Dutch coastline.

Chitwan National Park

They write songs, sonnets and plays about this kind of natural beauty. Making a living is harder in most parts of the world where success is determined by your own manual labor. End of the day returning in Chitwan National Park, Nepal.

Sri Lanka

Arms and legs out the window and everyone say, “cheese”! Family hijinks traveling by train through the tea fields on the island country of Sri Lanka.

Vancouver Canada

A rich jewel chest of autumn color announces winter in Vancouver, Canada

Leukerbad, Switzerland.

It’s a game of tag racing each other to the base of the impressive glacier carved peaks in Leukerbad, Switzerland.

Cameroon

Tromping around Africa for eight months in a fully equipped, self-built truck we ran into this man, who I made my husband.

Writing this I was renewed. Renewed by the living color that details my travels to stunning, faraway places. Sharing these personal photos with you energizes me again, and I am moved to discover more color on the road again.
