Weekly Photo Challenge-New-Horizons



My contribution for this week’s challenge…

New Horizons


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.

  1. Very, very nice …. post and entry … really like you story-telling to your images. The dessert image … is my pick. Never been to Dubai, but it’s second on my bucket list. I was also of the target .. because my horizons are from the past too, but it’s a bit difficult to have images of the future horizons. You have been to very exciting places this year.
    Thanks for the support and link-up!

    • Thank you. I did not think yours off target as many others posted similar photos. I nearly always write before I visit/look at other blogs. Dubai is a fascinating place. This time of the year, winter, is best apparently. At least according to an expat Aussie who is working there. If ever you visit Dubai…schedule; afternoon or high tea at the Sky View Bar in the Burj Al Arab; a Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise; Dubai Mall Fountain; desert safari; and more time an we would have gone to the Abu Dhabi Mosque…we were told it is brilliant. Almost forgot it’s worth a view form the top of the Burj Khalifa also.
