Word-of-Day-Challenge-Eruption

~~~~~

In 79 AD on August 24 & 25, although

new evidence suggests the date may have been October 24,

the eruption of Mount Vesuvius

buried the city of Pompeii.

 

It was a fascinating, although wet, 2016 visit.

Maybe because I wanted to be an archeologist

in my very younger days.

Giants from new Zealand…although we begin in Italy.

Anyone who has visited the Vatican

may have climbed the spiral step less staircase

and been in awe at its construction.

However the entrance/exit to the Ruakuri Cave, at Waitomo,

makes the Vatican staircase look like a miniature.

We also visited the Giant Redwood Forest at Rotorua.

These trees are not as large as some

of the photographed Californian Redwoods,

however, they are still Giant Redwoods

14-September-(Salmon) Pink

Salmon Pink.

According to my tags this shot comes from

our visit to the The Colosseum.

The first shot is a crop of this one.

Which is the second of two images,

the first of which has the statue in focus

and the girl near the post.

She apparently caught my camera’s eye

because her top was in focus but not much else!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Lime-Light-Green

First up I’m sure I have said

that I find colours difficult. 

However, here goes…

This plant is an Acacia called Limelight

We have several in our garden.

Is this Murano house light enough

to be classified as light green?

 

Anyone visiting and shopping in Dubai

will surely see this sight in one of the Malls

Is it green?

Two among many in Brugge.

Somewhere around Corio Bay.

 

An old strainer/gate post. 

In the background one of this year’s

canola crops beginning to bloom.
