I love finding bright colors out in the world when I’m traveling. I’ve turned that love into an Instagram “project” with an account that features three colorful travel photos every day, rotating through the rainbow. I’ve chosen my favorites from August for this month’s round-up post, so read on to see Instagram’s most colorful travel photos. Make sure to check out these great Instagrammers’ accounts if you enjoy their photography.


Now that it’s past Labor Day in the US, I’m ready for fall, and this gorgeous red corn perfectly suits my mood. This photo was taken in Cusco, Peru. Follow @our.taste.of.travel on Instagram, and check out their blog and Facebook pages for more great content.

Other top red photos this month were of the iconic British phone booths by @priya_balsara and a neon night scene from Bangkok, Thailand by @mari.onthemap.
