Capture the Color: Inspired by Tibet and China

I was nominated by Arianwen Morris (check out her stunning photos of Columbia at to take part in‘s competition called Capture the Color. First of all, I would like to say thank you to Arianwen for nominating me. It is a true honour to me to share my photography with you all.

I am extremely excited and happy to participate in this competition as I love playing with colors. There is nothing better than expressing the vivid color in your photos. The place I have recently travelled to and will always remind me of colors, especially these five: red, blue, green, yellow and white, is Lhasa- the capital city of Tibet. Therefore, I decided to mix Lhasa photos with some pictures taken in China to make it look more colorful. I hope you like them :).

So, here they are, my favourite Tibet and China photographs representing the following colors: red, blue, green, yellow and white:

1. Red Color- Chinese waving flags- Shanghai, China.



I spotted Chinese waving flags at the park in Pudong New Avenue on my way to World Financial Centre in Shanghai last October. It was very rainy and awful day but these red flags made the scenery look more vivid.

2. Blue Color- Blue Lhasa sky- Lhasa, Tibet

This clear blue sky is a wonderful background for this photo illustrating the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. I found it very simple but beautiful as well.

3. Green Color- The incredible Zhangjiajie Mountains- Zhangjiajie, Hunan province, China

I was climbing up the most beautiful mountains in the world last year where Avatar movie was made. It was so green everywhere. I couldn’t take my eyes of them! I was welcomed to Pandora and enjoyed Avatar live :).

I was traveling in Xi’an city in China last October and visited the Huaqing Hot Springs. I was strolling down the park and suddenly I saw a huge statue of dragon with enormous wings standing just in front of me. It looked 10 times biggest live than in the photo!

5. White Color- Tibet sky

I took 46-hour train from Chongqing (China) to Lhasa (Tibet) in order to see this extraordinary scenery. Every time I look at this whitey photo, it reminds me of the two days on the train.

All five!

That is me standing close to prayer pal in Lhasa, Tibet. This photo expresses all five colors Tibet is famous for.

    Thanks so much for the nomination, Agness! We’ll do our best, but there’s some great competition out there.

    I love your Zhangjiajie Mountains shot – so beautiful, and almost surreal.

    Wow. Really love the white one. And I can’t believe somewhere exists on earth that looks so much like Pandora! I have to go there now!!
