Europe by Colour: Green

Today's post, the third in a series on my favourite travel photos by colour, features the colour green.

The lush countryside in the Burgundy region of France offers many peaceful scenes like these Charolais cows grazing on the gently rolling hills in the M√Ęconnais.

Burgundy is also wine country and these plump grapes were maturing on the vines.

Greenery can be found in large cities too, like these neatly clipped shrubs near Kensington Gardens in London.

The Roman Baths gave the English city of Bath, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, its name. The bathing complex was established 2,000 years ago and the hot waters are a distinctly greenish hue.

At Stonehenge, another World Heritage Site in England, the only colour in evidence was the surrounding grass of the Salisbury Plain.
