WeeklyPrompts-Photo-Challenge-Right-Place-Right-Time

 

Love this theme…

Followers may have seen this shot on previous occasions.

Dear departed Maggie was clearing our backyard.

Earlier this year I noticed some action….

Hawk versus Mudlark is really no contest.

However it was great that I was able to capture

this shot before the hawk departed with its prize.

 

 

 

A northern hemisphere rainbow.

Flying back from Wiseman, Alaska.

At ground level it was a bright sunny day.

After a drive to Point Lonsdale Lighthouse

for some sunset shots.

I had packed up my gear and commenced walking

along the pier when this rainbow appeared.

It lasted no more than two minutes.

Weekly Prompt Photo Challenge: Right-Place-Right-Time

Wits-End-PC-Strength

 

When I saw the challenge was strength… 

I immediately thought of elephants.


These gentle giants know they have the strength

to damage a vehicle but it is

only now and again they do so.   

And then it is probably a young male or rogue,

both of which have not been

disciplined by their family

On our first visit to Africa we were told

that if an elephant is in a bad mood

it will possibly rip you rear view mirror

from your car, then

hand it back through the window. 

Up until now I have only met happy elephants.

Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge: Strength

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.

Wits-End-PC-Summertime

 

Seasonal challenges are another which are

often difficult if hosted in the northern hemisphere. 

However this time I do have

some summer time photos.

After leaving a chilly Australia in early June

we were surprised how warm it was in Alaska. 

Appears these Alaskan Huskies agreed with us.

They certainly enjoyed their dip

in the Chena River (Fairbanks)

after demonstrating their skills working as a team.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Teal-Aqua-Seafoam-Turquoise

~~~

Torquay, my favourite beach,

leads the way this week….

I think that might have been the end of that ride.

 

Hope this is the right colour also.

Glacier Bay…again hope not too blue.

 

And I think there may be some 

Aqua or Turquoise…

in these colours.

 

Finally, I am fairly certain these boats,

captured at Capri, are showing

this week’s colours also.
