Travel Theme : The Four Elements

Ailsa has chosen an unusual challenge this week and it took quite a bit of head scratching and scrolling through my large number of photos to decide what I would use this week.

These are the ones I have come up with…

First AIR…

The flow of air and light

The flow of air and light

Air as wind creates power

Air as wind creates power

All things share the same breath – the beast, the tree, the man…

the air  shares its spirit with all the life it supports.

Chief Seattle

*******************************

Next WATER…

The fury and might of the ocean

The fury and might of the ocean

The tranguility and calm of a water fall

The tranquility and calm of a water fall

Water is the driving force of all nature.

Leonardo  da Vinci

*********************************

Next FIRE…

The warmth and companionship of a camp fire

The warmth and companionship of a camp fire

The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or winter, and is
about as ample at one season as at another.  It is as well for cheerfulness as
for warmth and dryness. 
~Henry David Thoreau
**********************************
Finally EARTH…
After the rain and ready to plant

“The earth does not belong to us.

We belong to the earth.”
