Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 54

Colorific beauty!

Welcome to the 54th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

I went in a completely different direction with the RGB theme, and, given your record thus far, I wasn’t surprised to see a great set of posts with these cool colors!  Not only were your images colorful, but they were also highly creative!  As a result, I had a lot of fun looking at all of your posts (there were many!), for which I thank you!

This week also included some unusual images that were the result of really clever planning and understanding the ins and outs of long exposure photography.  I encourage you to check out all of this week’s entries!

There was a particular image that I captured in the Netherlands that I had in mind when this week’s theme crossed my mind…

Volendam Fishers

Serendipity is my friend on many occasions, such as this one, when I found these fishing boats moored in their colorful best! The town of Volendam is one of the old fishing villages on the Ijsselmeer, which was the Zuiderzee before it was closed off at its Northern side by the Afsluitdijk (literally: Closing off dike).  If you find yourself in the Netherlands, definitely check out the towns around the Ijsselmeer, as they are both picturesque and filled with history.

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  • Xenia posted first this week with a great quadrille and photos in her blog Whippetwisdom.  Later in the week she followed it up with a bit of Wanderlust too: Whippetwisdom.
