I’ve been road-tripping at the height of monsoon season and have weathered quite a few storms along the way. But one of the advantages of storms is the possibility of a rainbow when the sun finally breaks through. I’ve experienced more than my fair share of rainbows on this trip; here’s one over some wild west terrain in Utah.
And another over Yellowstone National Park.
Sticking with the multicoloured theme, check out the spray-painted motors at the Cadillac Ranch in Texas.
Here are some cheery looking motels along Route 66 in Amarillo, Texas.
And finally, a multicoloured and rather spooky-looking landscape at Mammoth Hot Springs in Wyoming.
Get your multicoloured photos at the ready because now it’s your turn to unleash a rainbow. If you would like to join in this week’s travel theme (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Multicoloured
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
- Don’t forget to subscribe to keep up to date on the latest weekly travel themes. Sign up via the email subscription link in the sidebar or RSS – I’m in the process of changing over to a new website host but will give you all a heads up when the changeover happens. If you’re following via email there won’t be a change but if you’re following via WordPress you will need to sign up for email or RSS.
Looking forward to seeing your kaleidoscopes of colour.
“Look up to the sky. You’ll never find rainbows if you’re looking down.” – Charlie Chaplin
“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.” – John Ruskin
The final shot is extraordinary. Nice challenge, Ailsa.
Thanks Tish, it’s an otherworldly place to see in person, and a photographer’s dream! Glad you like this week’s challenge, looking forward to seeing your post. xxx Ailsa
I so want to do route 66 and lots of others as well.
It’s a ridiculous amount of fun, Mrs C – I was giddy like a schoolgirl when we finally got onto Route 66 outside of Oklahoma. We only did a short stretch, as far as Gallup NM but, oh boy, it was fun and I couldn’t stop singing ‘Get your kicks on Route 66″ – one day I want to drive the whole route from Chicago right through to LA.
Oh so me too 🙂

Your rainbow pics inspired me to remember the last bits of one paralleling St. Louis’ Gateway Arch.

Hi Alisa, beautiful photographs. Rainbow always look attractive and the last one is great shot. Here is my link- http://amaltaas.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/travel-theme-multicoloured/
Your Cadillac ranch is incredible, but the last one….WoW!!!! I have never seen something like that!!!
Beautiful entries especially the last one 🙂
Wonder if I’ll find a bit of Irish multicolour to show off? I’m sure I’ll manage a rainbow or two!! 😉
A bright theme to counter yesterday’s dark memories, thank you, Ailsa!
And I absolutely adore your last photo, that is magnificent!!
Here’s my take on the theme: http://drieskewrites.wordpress.com/2013/09/13/travel-theme-multicoloured/

Wow! That third and last picture are fabulous, as well as the theme you chose for this week, Ailsa! Thanks again for sharing your creativity with us.
(As probably most of the people) I love light and colours. So it wasn’t very hard to create a suitable contribution. Here you are http://lanterfanteren.blogspot.com/2013/09/multicoloured-fall.html Hope you enjoy my interpretation.
Have a sunny weekend everyone of you and welcome to my “multicoloured fall” =]
