SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Edge

 

~~~~~

 

In 2014 while visiting Botswana we

came upon (during a side trip)

this fisherman standing too far

from the rock’s edge for my liking.

…but it does appear that he

does have a fish on his spear.

Widening the crop and he does appear

to be along way from the edge of the river.

Another crop and it’s not just running water

he needs to be aware of.

 

I added an pointer so he would be clearly visible…

fishing close to the edge of

Zimbabwe’s,

Victoria falls.

Although I do not have a photo to prove the fact,

I  did see the Northern Lights in August 1976.

Not a very colourful display but my Canadians friends

assured me it was the northern lights.

In May the same  year I visited Stonehenge also.

In 2016 I was able to add…

…the Colosseum to that list.

I still marvel that these pavers were laid nearly 2000 years ago.

Just imagine also the feet which have walk across here.

 

 

In 2014 we were…

 

…fortunate enough to visit…

…the Victoria Falls.

In April 2012 we spent a few hours…

out on the…

Great Barrier Reef.

I remember being little disappointed that we did not see

the colours often seen in movies/documentaries.

We were also told that a recent cyclone

had wrecked this section of the reef.

The comment left me wondering why we did not go

to  another, more attractive part.

After revisiting these photos I think my thoughts were a bit harsh.

All of these places of sites can be found on

an ‘Ancient’, ‘Natural’ or ‘New’ Wonders of the World search.

FOWChallenge-Game

Several was to look at Game.I have often heard it said about someone doing

something a bit dangerous that he/she ‘

had to be game to do it. 

Fishing on top of Victoria Falls fits in my opinion.

 

Then there  is the game of cricket and

all other structured sporting games.

And I think all the huskies we met

on our recent travels to Canada and Alaska

thought it no more than a game

to pull a sled or in this case a quad bike.

Looking at my first image…

you would are likely to think,

just a young bloke out fishing.

 

Then we see some white water and… 

the probability of him coming

to grief rise significantly…

at Zimbabwe’s

Victoria Falls.

Ups and Downs from everywhere.Victoria Falls joyride.

A Balloon ride over Melbourne.


Not sure if this is the front or back entrance,

but it was captured in old Sydney.

My recent drive up and down

Mount Buninyong

yielded two roads…

one for the journey up,

the other for the journey down.

And in this case what goes up must come down, on Geelong’s Eastern Beach.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL-Zoom-In-Zoom-Out

 

 

I know I declared last week a tough selection of words.

 However, this week it is the opposite end of the scale.  🙂

Nothing to dramatic about a fisherman

out to feed his family…unless…

the river is a bit wider than the first photo indicated…

and he was only a few metres from a waterfall.

 

And not just any waterfall,

but what is considered, by some,

to be the largest waterfall in the world

 

 

While they are not the widest waterfall

or the highest waterfall,

but with all dimensions taken into account,

including almost the largest flow rate,

they are considered to be

the biggest curtain of falling water in the world.

Surpassing the magnificent Niagara Falls and Iguacu Falls.

(Source: https://www.victoriafalls-guide.net/largest-waterfall.html)

Spanning 1,700 metres and varying from

70 to 108 metres in height and listed as one of

UNESCO’s seven natural wonders of the world

it is the ideal place to

‘go fishin’.’  🙂

Nearly forgot to add,

we visited in late September…the dry season

and there was only

the Devils Cataract and the Main Falls

with any quantity of water flowing over.
