Weekly Photo Challenge: Ooh Shiny, Elephants in the Sky

Ooh, Shiny!  

Thinking about the question what would distract me and cause me to stop that which I am busy with, I immediately thought about clouds. I always see clouds and will even stop while driving to look at interesting clouds. Here are a few.

An elephant in the sky, here now, but gone in an instant as air currents blow the cloud formation apart.

Weeky Photo Challenge: Elemental

Elemental
Nothing brings me more under the impression of the elements of earth and how insignificant humans are as mountains. Therefore to me elemental is represented by the majesty of mountains .

I took these pictures while walking across the Mill Bridge In Lucerne Switzerland. This wooden bridge is the original dating from the 16th century and was part of the city’s ¬†fortification. Citizens of the town crossed the bridge daily. The wood is old and weathered and in my mind’s eye I could almost hear the sounds of swords, voices and wagons. . This part of the bridge is wider to allow wagons access to it.
