Rainbow Planet: Full Spectrum Photography

Rainbow Planet: Full Spectrum Photography

Original photo by Thomas Shahan

Planet earth is one colourful place! Wherever you travel you’re certain to find vibrant shades, and along with them the desire to capture them as photos.

On the Visit Britain Superblog Paul did a lovely post showing ‘Rainbow Britain’, I thought I would go for a global version and shade it through the order of the spectrum. From violet to turquoise to crimson, we take a world tour of rainbow colours captured by talented photographers. Scroll the page up and down rapidly for the full, slightly psychedelic, rainbow experience!

Tenerife is certainly colourful from the sea all the way up to the top of El Teide. Turtles, dolphins and fish grace the shores around plus the array of colour all the way up inland to the top of El Teide cannot be ignored. An island to explore most definitely.

Scenes like the one above in Worcestershire are replicated all over Britain. The whole spectrum is covered in bloom and a drive out in the countryside is never a toll. Take the time to look around and enjoy nature in full glory. Be it on wheels or on foot.

Blue seas, blue and red skies, ancient buildings and palaces. High mountains, National Parks and battlegrounds that are steeped in history. When booking your flights to Turkey take the time to think about the wonders to discover apart from the relaxing at the beach. It is a treasure trove for tourists and history buffs alike.

    Beautiful, like paint on the palette, thank you, I was surprised at how strong my emotional response was to the picture which was taken relatively near to where I live, on top of the pure aesthetic delight and sense of wonder which comes from all those wonderful pics.

    Such good photography makes me want to continue striving for that perfect image. But no matter how good I get, there are always photos like these to make me think that I have a long way to go as a photographer
