Kids Capture the Colour Competition kindly gave Danny, Rebecca and Caitlyn a digital camera to take part in their Kids Capture the Colour Competition.

Using the camera provided, I gave them the task of taking photos to capture the colours, blue, green, yellow, white and red.  In reality the kids also got very excited taking photos of their favourite colours too:

Danny loves orange...

...and Rebecca loves pink.  But when we looked back over our hundreds of photos taken we looked for our favourite capture of the specified colours.  

Luckily, Caitlyn's favourite colour is blue.  Caitlyn is five (four when she took the photo) and took this snapshot of the blue sky and sea at Monk Haven, Pembrokeshire.  I love the different shades of blue.

Pembrokeshire is a very green place so we had so many different green photos to choose from.  Danny is ten and loves the great outdoors.  He loves being in the woods and took this photo of the trees in Monk Haven woods, in between swinging wildly on the rope swing on the clearing, of course.

  Rebecca loves flowers.  She was still six when she took this photo of a yellow flower in St Ishmaels Park, Pembrokeshire.  We love the park, in addition to the usual play equipment, there is a sensory garden.  It is just beautiful.

Also in St Ishmaels Park, Caitlyn chose a dandelion to snap for white.  A fluffy white dandelion.  We love to pick dandelions and make a wish as we blow the fairy seeds away.

We took many photos of lovely red flowers in bloom in St Ishmaels and Monk Haven but when I checked them lots were very blurry ("Steady hands please, kids!"), so Danny was set the task of taking some red photos.  It was a hard choice between his two favourites, the red dragon (Y Ddraig Coch) on the Welsh flag in our local park or the red boat down by our local beach.  In the end his love for boats won and he chose this photo.  He likes the reflection of the railings and, of course, the two red boats in the photo.

THe kids loved taking part in this challenge.  They always take lots of photos but just for themselves, knowing the photos were for our blog, meant they started to think more carefully about how they took the photo.

By the end of the challenge they had started to really look for the best shot and frame their photos in interesting ways, sadly though they were not always for the particular colours and we could only choose five photos for this post.

I can't wait to set them a Autumn Photography challenge on our next woodland walk to encourage them even more!

TravelSupermarket sent us a digital camera and this is our entry into their Kids Capture the Action Competition.
