Weekly travel theme- 4 elements

Over at Where's My Backpack this week's travel photo challenge is the four elements, air, water, earth and fire. My first shot shows the desert air whipping up nicely!

Meteor crater, N Arizona

Earth shots were a challenge! Travelling a lot in south west US, I am spoiled for the magnificence of earth. Meteor crater had to figure since earth took a really big hit about 50000 years ago! Tent rocks, Kasha-Katuwe, in New Mexico remains one of my top, 'oh my goodness, how can the earth look like that?' places.
Geothermal s of the Blue Lagoon
Iceland's geothermal features ticked a couple of boxes – bubbling earth and water ( and would be fire) all mixed up.

Where the earth bubbles through- Iceland

.. And finally a fire in the yard….

Thanks for visiting!

hi! i am Anne (hence vANNilla) - two 'N's autocorrect WILL autocorrect - grrrrrr I can most often be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen,(with my trusty thermomix) behind a camera or a kindle. If you are a traveller/photographer my bog is @vannilla https://vannillarock.wordpress.com If you have come as a baker my blog is http://vannillarock.com i studied economics in Edinburgh in the early 70's; now retired from a day job, on paper i have plenty of time to explore the blogosphere and enjoy the shared experiences of others. like every other retiree i know we wonder how we fitted in a day job. I split my time between Guernsey,. In the Channel Islands -a 20-odd square mile island with 60thousand+ inhabitants- and Phoenix, Arizona. The mix is perfect- the former is beautiful but attacks of cabin fever are never too far away. Arizona, on the other hand IS king of the open road and has THE biggest bluest sky EVER. my blogs revolve around baking (vannillarock) and photography/travel if you like what you see please do start a conversation :)

i'd love to hear from you...
