Here is a second entry for this weeks travel theme “orange”
I don’t remember how it started, but on our trip to China the people in our group started photographing shoes that we saw on the street. Of course we all got photos of the sites like the Great Wall and Terra Cotta Warriors, but at dinner each night everyone would show the photos of the shoes they took that day. OK, it was a little weird but a lot of fun. Orange seemed to be a very popular color, and so here is my entry for this weeks travel theme “orange.”
On the horizon are The Olgas (aka Kata Tjuta, meaning “many heads”) which are a collection of massive rounded rock domes located 25 miles to the west of Uluru (Ayers Rock) in the Northern Territory. Beyond Kata Tjuta lies the vast deserts of Australia . Kata Tjuta is not one single large rock but rather a system of domed rocks, gorges and valleys. The 36 domes that make up Kata Tjuta cover an area of 8.37 square miles with the highest point being Mount Olga at 3,497 feet above sea level, or approximately 1,791 feet above the surrounding plain.
Here is my entry for this weeks photo challenge “silhouette”. The views of the ocean and Haystack Rock at sunset from the patio of the Pelican Rub in Pacific City, Oregon are beautiful. In addition the food and the beer are both very good.
Here is a second take on the photo challenge “texture.” The Devil’s Golf Course can be found on the floor of Death Valley. The jagged formations are formed by crystallized salt deposited by the ancient salt lakes and are shaped by the winds and rain.
