weekly photo challenge: layers

Image Posted on Updated on

We are really enjoying participating in the Weekly Photo Challenge…. 

Our choice of photo this week to represent LAYERS is a photo we took in Mauritius back in 2005. 

This is “Chamarel Seven Coloured Earths”. Bascially it is a geological formation where the seven different coloured sands have settled in different “layers” causing the colouring phenomenon.

weekly photo challenge: horizon

Posted on Updated on

The past week or so has been pretty hectic on so many levels that we decided to pause from writing about our holidays and try something different. We joined The Daily Post community recently and this is our first post using one of their inspirations. The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is horizon.

So trawling through our photos, it was very hard to choose a horizon photo that resonated to us. But we decided to go with this one.

The sun is the star at the centre of our Solar System. And in this photo, taken in Kusadasi (Turkey), it definitely shows that it is a star 🙂

We were experimenting while waiting for the sun to set and took this photo through polarised sunglasses and we actually didn’t realise it turned out like this until we got home and uploaded the photo.

The horizon in this photo eventually swallows up the sun only 15 or so minutes later.
