April Words 2018
Tough selection this month 🙂
It was worth the drive and early rise
to see Dawn break.
Clouds form when airborne water vapour
Condenses unto water droplets or ice crystals.
Rain occurs when warmer air is cooled.
Warmer air holds more water vapour and
when cooled this vapour condenses to water
and rain occurs.
Something that has not happened
frequently enough this year.
is the merging of the Treur and Blyde Rivers
at Bourke’s Luck Potholes
in South Africa.
under an early morning fog.
the only thing I could think of was time.
It will probably be everlasting in our lifetime
and it seems that no matter whether
looking forward and back
we can measure time.
Bourke’s Potholes have been eroded
into smooth cylindrical formations…
by the churning waters
of the Treur River…
where it converges with the
Blyde River in South Africa.
Blyde River Canyon at Bourke’s Luck Potholes.
Caused by erosion and not a great photo,
this depicts previous faces of
Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe
as it works its way upstream.
My contribution for this week’s challenge…
Commencing in South Africa’s
Blyde River Canyon.
A narrow foot bridge spans…
a narrow gorge through which
the Blyde River passes.
Water cascades through a narrow opening in
one of the potholes at Bourke’s Luck Potholes
Meanwhile back in the old home state,
water was tumbling over Hopkins Falls last Wednesday.
In photography this shot would/could be
described as a narrow field of vision.
compared to the wider shot.
Although this shoot has been cropped to give
a narrow vertical field of vision.
Bourke’s Luck Potholes
Bourke’s Luck Potholes have been created by the meeting of the Treur (river of sorrow) and Blyde (river of joy) rivers.
Smooth red and yellow layers in the rocks, contrast with the dark pools below which have taken thousands of years of swirling, raging water to form strange cylindrical sculptures…..one of the most phenomenal geological phenomenon in South Africa.
Although he found none, the site is name after a local prospector who predicted the presence of gold.
Being there also helped 🙂 Thanks to MGW for her photo.
This terrapin shell also appears to have been created layer by layer.
