Travel Theme : The Four Elements


Thanks to Ailsa at Where’s my backpack, for the latest weekly challenge.   Here is my take on The Four Elements:

Norwegian Wood

My Earth photo was taken in Norway at the beginning of  winter 2009, when I visited for my grand-daughter’s first birthday. There was a little snow, but by Norwegian standards, it was hardly worth mentioning!

The second Element is Air, and I have 2 photographs for this.  They were taken on a windy day in Howth harbour, looking out at Ireland’s Eye, it was cold and looks like the heavens are about to open in the second photo, even though in the first one (taken a few minutes earlier) the day looks almost pleasant!

For my Water element, I am moving to another country again, and showing you 2 photos of the Zambezi river thundering over the gorge at Victoria Falls, this is one of my favourite places to visit.

And for my final element-Fire – my first photo is that Fiery Ball in the sky, which warms us all from millions of light years away, and gives us energy, makes us happy, and makes us sad when we can’t see it.

and finally, my own cosy winter fire that keeps me warm when the sun has gone away on a winter break.

Come sit by the fire.
