Bright and colourful photos can be show stoppers, but sometimes the palest of photographs can capture the imagination. Right now it is cherry blossom season in Seattle and the city is awash with pale pink blooms.
So I had a look through some of my files for other light, pastel-tinged photographs and here’s what I came up with.
Sea and sky glimmer delicate blue on the shores of Hawaii:
Dawn burns the palest of pinks through the windows of Amtrak’s Empire Builder cross-country train:
Dublin’s Four Courts buildings reflect faintly yellow in the River Liffey:
Fluffy stalks of sugarcane drift before hazy Guatemalan mountains:
Are you feeling faint yet? If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:

Super adjustment from the color challenge I just did for WordPress. The cherry blossoms always so pretty in Spring. Here is my entry …. http://isadoraartandphotography.com/2013/04/07/travel-theme-pale/

I love the theme this week Ailsa…there is such a subtle beauty to your images. here are my thoughts on the theme.
A little pale still, but not for long anymore. I’m sure soon the sun will paint some color on their skin…
Here’s my entrie Ailsa… made last weekend.
Hope you’ll like it.
