Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk214-Inferno

~~~~~~~

 

inferno

a large fire that is dangerously out of control.
~~~~~

A helpful fire…

…which, under the right conditions could turn into

an inferno such as we are seeing in Australia now.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk213-Illusions

~~~~~~~

 

illusion

an instance of a wrong or misinterpreted perception
of a sensory experience.
~~~~~

On the last day of our Botswana Safari

we visited Nata Bird Sanctuary

As we approached all I could see was

one huge grey wall in front of us.

It  was the greatest sensory misinterpretation

I have ever experienced.

For the record it was a sheet of ‘grey’ water.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk212-Expanse

~~~~~~~

 

expanse

a wide continuous area of something.
~~~~~

If we had visited Botswana’s

Lekhubu Island

a little over 10,000 years ago…

…we would have been in the middle of

Lake Makgadikgadi,

which covered an area ranging

between 80,000 and 275,000 square kilometres

(or, 30,888 to 106,178 sq miles)

and was up to 30 metres deep.

In 2014, however, it was simply acre upon acre of salt

with the rocky out crop known as Lekhubu Island

the only visible destination.

 

For 360 degrees all we could see was nothing

and yet I would still recommend it as

an overnight stop just to experience

this vast expanse of solitude.

The sunset and sunrise were glorious.

 

The drive out was a little more interesting

with various trees and villages sighted…

…but still the expanse of that salt lake

was always lurking on the horizon.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk210-Wheelhouse

~~~~~~~

 

Don’t have many wheelhouse photos.

tHis wreck was captured near

Cairns in Queensland.

 

 

The Camera Club to which I belong took a sunset

cruise around Corio Bay on the Hygeia,

in February 2019.

 

Our last Group outing in Alaska was a cruise

on the Chena River on the

Riverboat Discovery.

Pic-and-Word-Challenge_Wk209-Orange

~~~~~~~

 

Oranges of sorts from all over.

General Motors called this colour ‘Jaffa‘.

Most people call it orange.

 

 

A burnt orange?

 

Even the clothes line has orange.

 

Oranges?

 

 

Another orange colored daisy.
