Photo-Art by Neil de Boer

Capture the Colour

I have been nominated by Chillbrook to enter the Capture the Colour contest being run by TravelSupermarket.comThe idea of the competition is to publish a blog post containing 5 photographs that capture the following 5 colours – Blue, Green, Yellow, White and Red, to give each picture a caption and to write a little about each photograph. All these photographs have been taken in and around the area I live in Ontario Canada.


This shot was taken at the marina in Bronte Ontario. The reflections in the blue water caught my attention as I love the abstract art that can be found in nature.


This is the front door to a business in the Village of St. Jacobs called Artefacts. I love the texture and colour. Inside you can find all sorts of interesting Artefacts.


We came across these yellow paddle boats while walking around lake Victoria in Stratford Ontario. You can rent them out and go for a leisurely paddle around the lake. Stratford has many interesting shops and gardens to visit.


This chair is sitting on the shore of Colpy’s Bay near Wiarton Ontario. The air was crisp and even though we did not get a lot of snow this past winter the blue chair is a nice contrast to the white snow.


This is one of the most historic landmarks in Waterloo County – The Kissing Bridge. The red exterior is visible from a distance and is maintained mostly by volunteers.   The sun was at a good angle and with no leaves on the trees to obstruct the view the whole bridge was visable. Below is the description from the Township of Woolwich web Site.

You are suppose to nominate 5 other bloggers to enter this contest but since this is the last day to post I will not be able to do this but I do hope you will check out the other bloggers who are following me.
