My contribution for this week’s challenge…
I have taken a fairly literal interpretation
of ‘New Horizons’ this week
as we have seen many in 2016.
This is the type of horizon I have spent
the greater portion of my life viewing.
Horizons which are miles and miles away
and which may, or may not, be dotted with
a ‘mountain’, which tops out at three to four hundred
metres above sea level.
So to see boats on the horizon of Laguna Veneta
at Venice, was quite unusual…
as was this view out of our ferry window.
I have never previously seen this view…
a cruise liner blocking the horizon.
Then there were shorter horizons at Monaco…
and at La Turbie’s, Cafe La Terrassa,
about half and hour from Nice.
This horizon was only a few hundred metres from
Cafe La Terrassa.
Dubai’s horizons we beginning to resemble
that which I am used to seeing.
Although in this case I do not know of anything like
the Dubai Palm in Australia.
And I confess to thinking that this scenery was for
Lawrence of Arabia type movies.
I have never seen such expanses of sand in Australian deserts,
although I am sure there are similar places.
I have worked on the edged of
the Big Desert, in Victoria
and while there was a sandy soil it was
also covered with foliage of sorts.
Now, having read the WP Challenge I may be a bit off target,
but these were my New Horizons for 2016.
