Colours Through My Lens...!!

This post is my entry for Capture the colour contest by travel The contest is about submitting photographs capturing the five vibrant colours- Yellow, White, Blue, Green and Red.


Think of yellow and what flows through my mind are the blazing yellow sun, fluttering sunflowers and the shining yellow metal. 
This photograph was clicked inside Batu caves, Malaysia. It is one of the shrines inside the cave and what attracted me to this was the yellow light which had spread across, making the stalactites and the shrine glow in it.


White stands for purity but for me it has always been either clouds, snow or fluffy cotton.
This photograph was captured from KL Towers, Kuala Lumpur. The huge white cloud seemed like a crown for the miniature looking tall sky scrappers of the city and the distant hills. My imagination of the crown is what attracted me to the moment.


Blue is my favourite colour and for me it symbolizes the sky and the ocean.
This turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean was captured from a view point en route to the famous Le Morne mountain in Mauritius. What caught my fascination was the magnificent shades of blue that the waters displayed.


I can relate green only to verdant forests, plantations or pastures and nothing else.
On my way to B.R. Hills, near Bengaluru I was fascinated by this mesmerising landscape of green paddy field, green trees and green hills. The colour green was so hard to ignore and that made me photograph this.


I associate Red to blood and to the sun.
A wonderful evening was enjoyed on Pantai Cenang beach, Langkawai capturing the the blue sea, the blue sky and the interesting visitors. However as the sun set, what attracted me was the red shade that spread over a certain section of the sky. The sun had set but the colour red was so dominant in the blue frame.
