Travel Theme: Simplicity


What could be simpler than an anthill? Ruth has asked us to focus on the uncomplicated this week, with her travel theme of simplicity. My images are all from the Kimberley trip, so you will notice the red earth and rock in most of them. Sometimes the largeness of the scenery was too much for me, so I often focussed in on details, finding my peace and stillness in simple things.rosella

These rosella flowers were growing by the side of a small waterway on Mt Elizabeth Station. Striking aren’t they?

Peeling bark on this Salmon Gum at Nitmiluk is making way for the new, shedding bright orange strips and curls onto the ground below.

  1. Those rosella flowers are striking! Although a simple looking flower, the rich red color just grabs your eyes begging for attention. Great collection for the theme. πŸ˜€

  2. I’ve often thought that about Oz – the vastness can be quite overwhelming. Also, it’s in the detail that I get the stories of the landscape – that sere, minimalist landscape yields such fascinating details, like the spiral grass and the wonderful peeling bark – and the people who came, as you have here with the Rosella. Terrific shots, Christine – I can almost smell the place. πŸ™‚

  3. nel mio blog ti ho detto che sei magica e queste foto lo confermano per ,l ‘arte di far risaltare piccole cose e dar loro grazie, colore e movimento ci vuole davvero la bacchetta magica!!!

    in my blog I told you are magical and these photos confirm for the art to bring out little things and give them thanks, color and motion it takes really a magic wand!!!

  4. I think I would be quite interested in observing an ant hill, Christine. So simple, yes, but I presume rather complex, too. What a great reminder to not stop noticing the small things when we’re focusing on much grander horizons. I’m sure you were so pleased not to have missed these beauties! πŸ™‚
