Traveling the Rainbow: Purple

I am a believer that different colors evoke different feelings, emotions, and/or memories in us all.

When I've looked out into the red dirt and rocky walls of the Grand Canyon, I felt energized and in awe. As I swam in the green waters of Jellyfish Lake in Palau, I felt peace and wonder. When I am in the desert and see the brown dirt, I am always taken back to my childhood when we would always dirtbike (a family tradition of ours). When I swam in the crystal clear blue waters of Caramoan, Philippines, I felt at home.

I want to start something new. I want to find photos from all over the world with a specific color scheme. Beauty and color is everywhere. I want to use this "Traveling the Rainbow" series as a way to show appreciation to it all.

My first color I chose is of course my favorite:



Provence, France

Crocuses in Washington, D.C.


Saudi Arabia

Holi Festival in India


Glacier National Park

How does purple make you feel? What does purple make you think of? 

I found all these amazing photos via Google search. Just click on the caption below each photo to be taken to the source. Please feel free to join me in Traveling the Rainbow! I would love to see the photos you find!


  1. These are all absolutely gorgeous photos, thank you so much for sharing. This is such a good idea too. Purple is one of my favorite colors, so I am very glad you started with it!

  2. Lovely photos! I absolutely would love to visit lavender fields - I've been dreaming of that for awhile...purple is a pretty relaxing and comforting color to me. When I was about 10, we gave my room an all-purple makeover. Like curtains, walls, bedspread, everyyything. And I still love purple :) I just found this article and it shares some neat insights and meanings.

    1. I agree-- purple is relaxing and comforting to me as well. I want an all-purple room! Hopefully someday. And thanks for the website-- really cool!

  3. This is so fun! I love this idea. I can't wait to see the other colors :)
