I’m looking forward to spring this year! It seems to be taking a long time though. For a reminder of what’s coming soon, I have these pictures from Monet’s garden in Giverny, France. There was a lot of green there, not only from the garden but from the farmhouse and the bridge. Have a look.
The last time I was in France I went to Giverny to see Claude Monet’s exquisite gardens. The house where Monet lived has lots of windows that overlook the gardens. I thought these windows would fit this month’s challenge. To learn more about the photo challenge visit East of Málaga.
The view from the windows:
The two blogs I’d like to recommend are:
I want to say “Thank you” to Kathryn from Travel with Kat for this nomination. I’m happy to have the opportunity to show photos I’ve taken that correspond to the following colors: blue, green, yellow, white, and red. If you go to TravelSupermarket.com you’ll find out more about “Capture the Colour.” It explains all the steps needed to participate, and there are prizes, too. And now here are my photos.
I was in Capri, Italy and used a chairlift to get to the top of the island. While there I enjoyed watching the progress of the boats in the water. I recall the experience in Capri from a Chair Lift.
These are some water lilies from Monet’s Garden in Giverny, France. I was there in the spring and I thought there wouldn’t be much in bloom. As it turned out, there was no need for concern. I wrote about what I saw that day in The Beautiful Flowers of Giverny…
When I’m in Venice, my goal (once I’ve stood in Saint Mark’s Square) is to wander and get away from the crowds. I’ve always found that once I’m off the main road there are more everyday – and less touristy - sights. I really like seeing laundry hanging from the windows too.
I was in Zermatt, Switzerland on a warm spring day with a clear blue sky. But the whole time there was a little cloud around the Matterhorn. I finally realized it wasn’t going away and it made the scene a little more dramatic.
I took this picture while I was walking around downtown Dallas, Texas in January. I was looking for the flagship Neiman Marcus building when I saw this oversized Christmas ornament. I describe my visit in Greetings from Dallas.
Now I’d like to nominate the following five bloggers to participate in “Capture the Colour”:
And the sooner, the better! Here are a few pictures from Monet’s garden in Giverny, France as a reminder that it will be spring again…
While I was in France in May, I visited Monet’s gardens in Giverny. Before I went I was hoping to see some early spring flowers and then use my imagination as to what the gardens might look like in full bloom. To my surprise and delight, there were flowers in bloom everywhere! I literally felt like a fashion photographer, one that continuously snaps photos in pursuit of the perfect shot. But in my case, I have to say it would have been difficult to take a bad picture of such a beautiful scene.
