Weekly Photo Challenge : Layers

Layers are so intricate, they are all around us and, to me, the best example of layers is in the floral world. The way they open one layer at a time to give us perfection of form and when it is combined with a glorious scent it is heavenly.



Another example of layers, again in nature, is the complex formation of the earth. The layers of rock that have formed over millions of years. One of the best and most awe-inspiring rock formations I have seen was the Bungles in the Kimberly region of Australia. As we flew in to this remote area the site of the range below was amazing.

I spent a day walking among these magnificent formations and of course took hundreds of photos. Here are a couple of them. They bring the feel of that day back to me, how I was over whelmed by the beauty and grandeur. But unfortunately I cannot capture that feeling in a photo, you will have  to walk among them yourself .

 I put the Kimberly’s as my favourite place in my trip around Australia.

Finally an example of layers created by man. I like the way the architect has designed this house in layers.
