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!
Santa Ynez, California
Tenerife, Canary Isles
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.
Visons and pictures of The Maldives always brings blues upon blues. The sea and the sky meet the sand to make it a destination of dreams.
Lake Peyto, Canada
Canada is huge country that is packed with mountains and emerald coloured lakes. Wildlife of all kinds and due to its size the country boasts a massive contrast from east to west.
The Northern Lights are a sight to behold. The best places to see them are Northern Canada, and north of the Scandanavian countries like Norway and Sweden.
If you are really lucky they occasionally come further south so you can see them in Britain too.
Scenes like the one above rapeseed field 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.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
The wonderful Tulip. A flower that has become an emblem of so many things and countries. An such an array of colours to bring at springtime.
…And finally an amazing rainbow photo so you can check we got the colours right! This stunning double-rainbow was shot in the St Elias National Park in Alaska.
