I just caught the tail end of ‘The Fifth Element’ on television; you know the bit where Bruce Willis defeats the bad guy, saves the earth and gets the girl? Now, five elements might prove a little tricky to photograph, but the first four are certainly doable, so here is my homage to earth, air, water and fire.
My pick for earth will come as no surprise; Zion National Park in Utah is one of my favourite spots on this planet.
My photo for air is a storm brewing over Jamaica Bay Wildlife Sanctuary in Queens, New York – about thirty seconds after I took this shot, an insane thunder and lightning storm broke loose and I almost drowned. Good times.
My water photo is a boat drifting lazily off into the sunset over Elliot Bay last weekend.
Last but not least, here’s some fire on cobbled streets in Guatemala, during the La Quema del Diablo festival in Antigua.
Now it’s your turn to get down to earth, come up for air, test the water and play with fire. If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: The Four Elements
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday
