Weekly Travel Theme: Wild

This week, over at Where’s my Backpack?, Ailsa has challenged us to come up with images that say ‘wild’…now, I can think of a number of connotations for this but I’ll stick to a wild landscape, wildlife and wild flowers for my post.

As usual, click on an image to start the slideshow…


  1. my friend always cautions her driving daughters, “Be careful the deer are rutting” – A driver’s nightmare.

  2. looks like a post card… nice

  3. Pat

    These are beautiful images for “wild”. I especially took note of how you framed the mountains because we are headed to the Rockies, Washington and Oregon so I’ll have lots of opportunities to take mountains.

    • Thanks, Pat. Incidentally, that shot of the Carpathians was taken through the window of a moving car! I did this quite a lot while we were being taken to and from different places by our guide, because I figured that I wouldn’t necessarily get all the shots I wanted otherwise!

      • Pat

        Thanks for telling me that. I have found that landscape shots turn out well enough as long as there isn’t much in the foreground. I’ll keep my camera on my lap. 🙂 And my new 70-300 mm lens has vibration control. 🙂 I have to keep reminding myself that I am not selling prints so they don’t need to be perfect. And so many places don’t have pull-offs where I would like to stop.

      • Excellent! There are times when something gets in the way, but keep shooting – with a digital, you can delete to your heart’s content! 🙂

  4. Such a great collection of photos for “wild”! The countryside of Romania looks beautiful!

    • Thanks, Janaline! the Romanian countryside is very beautiful, and for the most part vast tracts are completely unspoilt…or should I say, we’re a few years ago but the country is so large I can’t imagine too much would have changed. 🙂
