Capture the Colors Contest

Mr.P.N.Subramaniam has roped me into this contest and I therefore am obliged to participate. I had to search and research my picture archives before selecting what I considered the most appropriate to present for this contest. In the process I had to exclude many nice ones since I did not want to unnecessarily clutter this post: 

Enjoy these pics and have a great Sunday !

This competition is organized by Travel Supermarket. The rules of the competition are given here:http://www.travelsupermarket.com/c/holidays/capture-the-colour/ . Now as per rules of the competition I am supposed to tag five other bloggers to do the honors. The five I have nominated are selected purely at random and without any bias or preferences. I am sure they will accept the challenge and enjoy participating .
