This week’s Foto Friday Fun features images chosen by eight readers from my photo files and includes photos from the mountains to the sea.
Mary Lou chose #4214, a drive by shot of Hogsback Pass in South Africa. Although I love the desert, mountains call my name with their hidden crooks and crannies often buried in the forest. This unexpected side trip to Hogsback was filled with magic plus the local Samango monkeys put on an unexpected show for me.
Sherry chose #9994. What a coincidence that two photos with this number and almost the same view, first in fall 2014 and second in spring 2015. My view across Transept Canyon to the Widforss Plateau from the RV changes with the seasons.
Pam chose #3538. As mentioned before I am attracted to mountains and during my 2013 journey in South Africa I often went out of my way to drive over mountain passes. Next to Swartberg, I’d have to say that Bain’s Kloof was my second favorite. Maybe because it’s named after Thomas Bain, the man responsible for engineering many of these passes during the 1800s.
Diane chose #7009. Water is such a special gift in the desert and makes me really appreciate the struggle for plant and animal life. This unidentified plant was seen along the Barker Dam trail in Joshua Tree National Park during March, 2015.
Shane chose #7508. The bird hide in camp at Addo Elephant National Park offers an opportunity to see the animals up close and from a different perspective than our truck. Many animals come in to the nearby waterhole like these zebras.
Jodee chose #5567. I don’t see that many sunrises, except when in South Africa. On this morning in February 2014, Joan and I had camped at the Scottburgh Caravan Park right on the Indian Ocean and I stood on the beach in awe of the new day, taking hundreds of photos.
Yogi chose #0625, finally a lower number so a little further back in time. When monsoon storms come to Grand Canyon they often leave a rainbow gift. This sighting is over Roaring Springs Canyon from the North Rim on September 11, 2011. Not sure if that’s a smudge on the lens or smoke from a fire.
Please join in for next week by leaving a number between 0001 and 9999 in your comment below. Thanks for playing along with Foto Friday Fun and allowing me to share these photographs and memories.
