Weekly Travel Theme: The Four Elements

Interesting idea over at ‘Where’s my Backpack?’ for the Weekly Travel Theme – this week it is The Four Elements. Off for another trawl of the archives…

For Earth I have chosen an image I took many years ago in Switzerland, largely because I like it (!!), but also because it is earth in the form of grass covered land and the unadorned rock of the mountains behind (well, OK, not entirely unadorned as there is snow).
Fire was easy, because last year I took some images of straw being lowered into a volcanic fissure on Lanzarote (Timanfaya National Park), with predictable results!
For Air, I have chosen an image of vapour trails in the sky, seemed to neatly conjure up air.
Water could have been the sea (but that appeared for the recent Beaches theme), a lake, a river…but I thought of the fountains and waterfalls at Villa d’Este in Lazio, Italy. There is so much water in that garden, and it seemed appropriate here…

Enjoy! And please do leave a comment or three…

  1. Your waterfall is amazing as is Timanfaya another must see in my book.

    • Thanks, Mrs C…I spent a while experimenting with different shutter speeds to get just the effect I wanted, it paid off! Plus I stood at the side (getting a bit wet from the spray) to get a different shot. What larks!

  2. Perfect selection for the challenge!

  3. Beautiful collection of photos for this challenge! Love the photo of the Swiss Alps

    • Thanks! I hoped I had posted some interesting images…..the Swiss Alps one was taken from a cable car, and I just liked the lines of it.

  4. I think they are all brilliant shots! Well done 🙂
