photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
The Katy Trail is a rail trail running 370 miles across Missouri, mostly following the river. Its all flat and easy to ride and most people do it in about a week. This was Sedalia which was at the end of my first day. So very "small town USA" and I met some lovely people that evening. It like so many small towns is really struggling and the Katy Trail is helping to bring tourism to this area. Its a stunning slice of the country and I have all my fingers crossed that towns like this will benefit from this cycling tourism.
There are so many beautiful locations around Lake Tahoe, Emerald Bay, the snow capped mountains, the private boat sheds and beaches but this one of Chambers boat house was where we spent quite a few afternoons having cocktails and watching the kids catch crawdaddies and generally relaxing the afternoons away. I will always remember it fondly.
Egypt is not in any better position than it was when we went 5 years ago sadly. This however made it very easy to spend a full morning cruising the Nile on a Feluca, eating a traditional lunch at a Nubian village and then sitting still for an hour to capture the sunset over the opposite bank. All for around $15 AUD. My last day in Africa and a sad day but the perfect day at the same time.
The Danakil Depression in north east Ethiopia is a stunning collection of salt pans, heat and the most atrocious smell you can imagine in parts. At up to 116m below sea level it is an incredible thing to see. It is VERY hot (got to 52 degrees when I was there) and there is camel riding involved, however its one of the most stunning natural phenomenon I've ever seen. If you are close - GO!
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
