A Word A Week Challenge Travel

A Word A Week Challenge – RUN

A Word A Week Challenge - RUN

Quite a simple challenge word this week but turns out quite a hard one to capture.

The result is three quite different takes on RUN.

The first RUN is a small herd of zebra on the plains of the Mara in Keyna. The photo (above) is taken from a hot air balloon in the early light of the morning. As the balloon approached, the animals took off haphazardly.

The second RUN is that of a waterfall.

This cascade, Steall Falls, is at the end of Glen Nevis in the Scottish Highlands. We lived in Fort William one summer and spent many an afternoon exploring the glen, Nevis Gorge and taking walks at the foot of Ben Nevis.

The third RUN is a particularly spectacular sunset in southern Queensland.

When I look at this picture I see a RUN of colour, like the sky is bleeding. The distinctive silhouette of the Bunya Pine trees gives Queenslanders a hint that this photo is taken at the Bunya Mountains National Park. These ancient pines and rainforest lie about 200km north-west of Brisbane and provide many citysiders with an idyllic bush escape.
