The Traveler

The Traveler

Never worries about the time
Unaware of the path traveled
Just continuing onward
The journey happens as you slide
Each moment uniquely yours
Ready to be shared with the world
When you get back home safe

So why not bring your house with you?

Wallaman Falls

All the way down to the basin of the Wallaman Falls, the highest single drop waterfall in Australia. The area is filled with beautiful pristine rain forests and has a great natural camping ground. Really enjoyed our time there back in 2010. And this one will certainly be featured in the photobook. I actually made the first selection for the book. So finally it’s underway 😀

My brother has lent my camera on his holiday and now in return i can use some of his photos for the blog. So i’ll show you some nice ones in the weeks to come. This is the first one, of a Lemur sitting on a branch

Travel – a Monochromed Madness Theme

travel-mm

This week is the first of the month, so it means that at Leanne Cole there is a themed Monochrome Madness. This month’s theme is Travel. For the image i choose, i didn’t choose to go through all my travel photos to pick the one i liked the most. Instead, i intuitively choose this picture i took a little over a week ago at the coast in Zeeland (a province in the south-west of the Netherlands, close to the sea as it’s name translates to Sea land). It’s one of my former roommates walking through the wet sand on our stroll on the beach. I personally like the simplicity of it. Not difficult to see what the image is about and yet the reflection creates a subtle extra dimension. Walking is such a wonderful way to travel. Just go where the legs will bring you

And as an extra i’d like to show the original colored version too, think the sand looks great in colors 🙂

Laughing Matters

Kookaburra

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Laughter reaches my ear as i’m unable to locate the source
A lovely eerie voice screeches my brain
Rattling with joy the sound pitch goes up
Then i realize i’m in the land of the Auzzies
Home of the ever cheerful laughing bird
Looking up i spot the joyful trickster
One more laughter and then he’s off
Leaving me in bewilderment
But now armed with a big wide smile

Waimakariri River

Saw this image some time ago on the blog, but as the years passed, i also learned a bit about horizon. So i edited this image and straightened it. One of the great memories from back in 2008 in New Zealand, we camped at this river called Waimakariri or Waimak for short. Very rocky and as it was the dry(er) season, not so much water. Wonderful stars at night and this beautiful scenery during the daytime

Giggling

These young giggling girls
Have interesting ways of
Communicating

Rather than speaking
Screaming seems to be the norm.
Can my ears handle?

Yet it’s quite funny
What these youngsters talk about;
Exaggerating

Solar Disco

Solar Disco at Zadar in Croatia

From Lonely Planet website:
Another wacky and wonderful creation by Nikola Bašić, this 22m-wide circle set into the pavement is filled with 300 multilayered glass plates that collect the sun’s energy during the day. Together with the wave energy that makes the Sea Organ ’s sound, it produces a trippy light show from sunset to sunrise that’s meant to simulate the solar system. It also collects enough energy to power the entire harbour-front lighting system.

Waterfall in the forest

Leave a comment

Another photo of Plitvice Lakes National Park from Croatia. I found it very cool to see a waterfall in the middle of the forest. Most of the waterfalls are standing out by themselves, but this one was a bit hidden. Still hard to miss, but more integrated into its surroundings. Couldn’t cut down the trees (and if i could, i wouldn’t lol), so i left them in frame.

If you live in Europe, or get the change to go.. Croatia is a great place to visit! Not to expensive and a lot of wonderful nature!
