October Squares | Day Thirty

This month Becky (the Queen of Squares) has challenged us to find lines. In Squares naturally. That is the only proper ‘rule’. I have been dipping into the archives for this one, as well as finding local lines.

These slow moving waves on the Hayle river were caused by a small fishing vessel that had left the quay in front of me. I was capturing the lines of the viaduct and boat masts for the challenge, but then this caught my eye. I hope it captures the feeling of the swell moving along.

This is the penultimate square lines – still time to post if you want to join in!

October Squares | Day 30

Travel Theme: Clean

Ailsa of “Where’s My Backpack?” is concerned about clean air and is choosing CLEAN for the theme this week. If you would like to join in with her challenge then please do. Everyone is welcome.

My personal bugbear is that of clean water. We take it for granted that we can turn on a tap and have water so good we can drink it, let alone wash in it or clean our clothes in it.  Sadly this isn’t the case in a lot of the world.clean 5

In Slovenia in the Vintgar Gorge flows some of the clearest water I have ever seen. The 1.6 km long Vintgar gorge carves its way through the vertical rocks of the Hom and Bort hills and is graced by the Radovna with its waterfalls, pools and rapids. 

Discovered in 1891 by Jakob Žumer and Benedikt Lergetporer, the gorge was soon after equipped with wooden observation walkways and bridges, and was opened to the public on August 26, 1893. Wikipedia

On a hot day there is nothing better than walking through this gorge in the shade with the sound of the water beside you.
