You Capture: Spring part 2

Last week's you capture theme was Spring and this week's theme is Spring... again!
Only this time we were supposed to think outside the box and come up with something different.

I may have cheated a bit here, because I can't say that I thought "out of the box" when I took these pictures.
What I really did was take myself out of my own personal box, packed up and headed on a little vacation.
So here is Spring in the Caribbean...

Spring is blue water...

teeming with life.

Pretty birds with new songs.

Colorful blossoms

and prickly cactus

Long boat rides

and cool ocean breezes.

That's my kind of Spring! I love the blue water and how you captured the fish. So clear!

Megan said...

great compromise....hopefully no one mentions the name in the comments, or you're back to square one! :) glad you had so much fun!

Mmmm turquoise seas and sugar sand beaches (drooooool)

I really loved the bloom picture. I know what you mean about outside of the box. My first set of pics (picnic in the park) were outside of the box. My next post was going to be tons of flowers, but then the legendary Ernie passed away and I knew I had to do something special just for him. Especially since here in Michigan he WAS the SOUND of spring and summer.

You just made me very jealous! What a lovely location! And great pictures, I can imagine you had a blast! Your first holliday with your new camera! I love that second picture with the colorful fish. It's magical. First thing I saw was one little fish, at second glance I saw three, then ten, then dozens! They just seemed to pop up like that!

Regina said...

What I wouldn't do to be in the Caribbean right now! Looks so much more beautiful than the snow that's falling outside my window right now!

It sure is a different spring from what I'm used to! The photos are excellent!

You may not have thought outside the box, but I guarantee you made a lot of people jealous! :) :) Love your shots, especially the first one with the blue, blue water! Gorgeous. Hope y'all had a fantastic trip!

Julie said...

Beautiful pictures! What a fun vacation :).

Julie said...

As that very first picture loaded, tears filled my eyes. Thinking about the 6 long months McDaddy spent there and the wonderfully, relaxing, enjoyable week we spent with him there. I am ecstatic for you that he got to come home with you for a bit. It will be just the charge you need to make it through. Enjoy your time together and of course, from one military wife to another, hang in there. =)

Teri said...

Oh that is so awesome Colleen! Great pics, and what a fun break!

That's definitely my kind of spring. I recently got back from Hawaii, which is where I'd love to spend every winter and spring. :) Great shots!!
