Ailsa has the most amazing photo on her site as part of her Sky theme. The one of Bonneville Salt Flats, have a look, I’m sure you’ll like it too. While you’re there, think about joining her challenge this week, everyone has good sky photos!
This is a local one taken on Dartmoor a few years ago.
The sun going down over Tunku Abdul Raman Park - the islands off of Kota Kinabalu.
Looking through the sky down to the Alps somewhere over northern Italy.
This one is on Borneo, I think the cloud is ascending through a hole in the sky.
To join in visit Ailsa, http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/11/29/travel-theme-sky/
If you just take my hand . . . no wait a minute, if you just take my leg . . . we might get the right motion here!
Ailsa has picked motion for her theme this week, join in at http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/07/05/travel-theme-motion/
I just wanted to highlight Isobel’s post that I re-blogged this morning, it’s something that I feel passionate about so if you could just take a look at these beautiful creatures and go over to sign on the link from earlier it would be wonderful. http://isobelandcat.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/save-the-orangutans/
We like it here, but it would be better if there was enough food and nice trees deep in the forest.
Here is our forest
My cousin is hiding up there, he has darker fur than I do because he chooses all his own food!
This is a friend
Will you help to make sure that the baby grows up to have babies too?
Can you see all those rows of trees? They are taking over our habitat and we need help so that we can survive.
With credit to Ross and Lori Hall and Lindy Campbell who took some of these photos while I was too ill to hold my camera!
Ailsa has chosen Animals to mark World Animal Day on Thursday, 2 days ago. I was very privileged to be able to visit Sepilok, Borneo to see the orang-utans, really high on my ‘do before I die’ list. I hope you like this beauty!
I love silhouettes but don’t really have a true one. This is as close as I can get. A picture of my friends taken in Kota Kinabalu looking towards Tunku Abdul Rahman Park islands.
There will be more to see over at Ailsa’s place, http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/08/24/silhouette/ her own are superb.
A really difficult one this week because I usually delete photos like this as being too bleached out!
The weeks photo challenge is what I like to do most of all – journey! A journey for me is to be as far away from my normal world as possible, not necessarily in distance, but in culture, landscape, climate and experience. So the photo I have chosen was taken in Borneo, the greatest distance I have travelled, so far, and as this is in rain forest it’s really different from temperate England. This is the Kinabatanga river in Sabah.
Poisonous green snakes nestled in the trees and wild orang utans and proboscis monkeys were up there too. If you check out a post from last year you will be able to read more about this particular journey. http://lucidgypsy.wordpress.com/2011/05/20/nests-of-primates/
Mine would make a very dull photo so here is someone else’s! Taken at Sepilok, if you would like to learn more take a peep at my earlier post
Is this how you do a pingback?
I’ve decided to post some animals I’ve met in various places for this weeks photo challenge, hope you like them!
She was the ‘beauty queen’ at a camel sanctuary.
Closer to home, in the New Forest, Hampshire UK.
A baby at Kuala Gandah orphanage.
Mole national park, funky beastie!
I’ll never like them but I suppose they’ve earned their place on this planet, Paga, where they are seen as sacred.
If you want your children’s children to be able to see me please don’t destroy any more of my habitat.
Taken on a flight from Kota Kinabalu to Sandakan in Borneo where the river would be a ‘path’ for many isolated communities.
