Travel Theme: The Four Elements

This week’s Travel Theme challenge from Ailsa is all about the elements. Four of them in fact!


(Above) I have selected the incredible beauty of the hoodoos in Bryce Amphitheatre in Utah. What a place for understanding the geology of the planet. Vast panoramas can be seen from Inspiration Point and Sunrise Point which feature the Black Mountains in the northeast and Navajo Mountain in the south.


I have selected a photo of a hot-air balloon passing over the English countryside. You can always tell when the weather is good because suddenly the air is filled with the soft whooshing sound of gas burners as they float by.



I have lots of water photos, so what to choose? Eventually I decided on this tranquil image of Lake Powell – ‘ the river runs through it’ – and the Navajo power station and Navajo mountains in the background.

and finally…


This one caused the most head scratching. I don’t have any photos of actual fires, so I considered fireworks and even proteas or fynbos are they are born of fire, but then remembered that I had this image of the volcano, Mount Etna in Sicily (not in eruption sadly), but definitely well connected with fire.

    • Thanks for your comment Philip. I have lots of photos to publish, but actually these ‘games’ often help in digging out ones you have forgotten about, and I always like a challenge 🙂
      Take care xx

    • Thank you Mrs C. Bryce is quite stunning and we saw it in March just after three feet of snow had fallen. Love the contrast between the red, white and blue, even though it meant we couldn’t walk very far because of the snow and ice.

I'd like to hear your opinion
