Travel Theme : Horizons

A field of dreams stretching to the horizon

A field of dreams stretching to the horizon

A dream is the bearer of a new possibility,

the enlarged horizon, the great hope.

Howard Thurman

You must learn day by day, year by year to broaden your horizon.

The more things you love, the more you are interested in, the more you enjoy,

the more you are indignant about, the more you have left when anything happens.

Ethel Barrymore

Red dirt, spinifex and a lone tree struggling to survive on the horizon

Red dirt, spinifex and a lone tree struggling to survive on the horizon

Never have I found the limits of the photographic potential.

Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals another beckoning in the distance.

Always, I am on the threshold.

W. Eugene Smith

Drought in the outback

Drought in the outback

We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction

that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

The sad effect of the drought

The sad effect of the drought

People say to us how brave we are, fighting the wilderness, braving the isolation of the Outback. But these are easy opponents, compared with drought. To watch your land shrivel and die, year in and year out, to see beautiful fields turn to dust bowls, to watch your animals starve and die. To suffer all this, only to be then washed away in a flood, your home and your family treasures lost and destroyed. And then to pick up the pieces and start again. The farmers of the South are brave! “

SARA HENDERSON, From Strength to Strength
The road travels endlessly to the horizon

The road travels endlessly to the horizon. This year there has been rain, what a difference to the previous photo.

Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step;

only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road.

Dag Hammarskjold

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

A horizon for me is a challenge. A wanting and needing to find out what lies beyond. An excitement, a constant need to explore, be it a good or bad experience it is never boring.

Take the road less travelled, look for adventure and constantly head for the horizon.

Thank you for this weeks challenge Ailsa.
