Travelling in the pink

For this Roy post, I've collected together pink images from my travel photos. Some are subtle, some are strong in colour ... and one is unbelievable, but I haven't faked it - truly ...

First of all, many different pinks spotted in Singapore (much bright oriental colour) ... in Chinatown 

                                    

Shops in the old part of the city ...

      

   A poster advertising the company our host works for...
        
                                    

  And gentle pink chrysanthemums in the Gardens by the Bay ...

  

Then in Australia, on Sydney's Darling quay ...

    

The Sydney skyline at sunset ...

    

... and last of all, this extraordinary view of Uluru (Ayers Rock) near sunset. The sun's rays were filtered through fine cloud, apparently quite a common occurrence ... and it really was this colour!

     

We are very sad to be leaving this beautiful country tomorrow, but the delights of South Island New Zealand await us. As we are meeting up with American friends, there may be less time to post.

  1. All of your photos are wonderful - I so enjoy seeing photos of these far-away places. The photo of Uluru is especially striking. I envy you in your travels, and hope you have a great time on the rest of your trip. Please share photos of New Zealand when you get back!

    1. As we are now travelling with American friends,posting may be harder though New Zealand looks set to be just as amazing as Australia.

    1. Very many thanks. With so many new things to see just now, it was hard to choose which to include. I'm glad you enjoyed the selection.

  3. Oh, what a wonderful adventure - and a great chance to capture some very special pinks. I especially noticed the contrast between the soft chrysanthemums & the hardness of the rock - yet it's such a subtle, dynamic shade...stunning!

    1. It is so extraordinary, and everywhere so different. The contrasts are fascinating. When we get home next week, we'll struggle to adjust, I know.

    1. It is a dream and much of it shared with very good friends which makes it even more special. It has been long in the planning and anticipation and has so far lived up to all our expectations.
