Travel Theme: Yellow
I get such a kick out of putting together these Travel Theme posts dreamed up by Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack. Mostly because it’s a great excuse to skim through my iPhoto library looking for photos that correspond with the theme. It tends to turn into a leisurely trip down memory lane. Plus, I always start out thinking something like, “I don’t even know if I have any travel photos with yellow in them,” and end up with too many photos to choose from.
The most obvious photos in my arsenal for this particular theme were taken during autumn, when golden aspen trees create Colorado’s predominant fall foliage.
Fall is by far my favorite time to hike for this very reason.
Alongside the millions of hiking shots in my library, I love this snap of the golden trees at my uncle’s ranch.
And there’s one evening spent wandering around a Denver park that I remember only in shades of yellow and gold.
The other shades of yellow I’ve found in nature have been in the form of wildflowers. Both on a fabulous hike close to home…
And on a mind-blowingly-beautiful walk along the beach in Carmel, California.
I’ve also created plenty of gorgeous urban memories tinged by yellow. Like the gorgeous Four Seasons Istanbul where I was lucky enough to stay last year…
And Paris illuminated in yellow. In Las Vegas.
And because if I could, I’d end every post with a whimsical photo of a ferris wheel:
So tell me, which photo is your favorite?
