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.
Unfortunately due to Mr Trump's government shut down we couldn't get into the Hoh River trail, however we did get a long way into the national park which was amazingly stunning. I had no idea that there was such a thing as cold weather rainforest or that it was so very beautiful.
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.
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!
Rwanda is a stunning country that is completely committed to ensuring its national pride is always both on show and protected. Every month for 3 hours on a Saturday the whole country stops and spends that time doing community based projects. Rwanda is pristine clean with not a spec of rubbish anywhere but its the natural countryside that truly takes your breath away. This is the view over the twin lakes of Lake Burera and Lake Ruhondo, near Musanze. We spent an amazing day with our lovely local guide Ferdinand on these lakes and villages under the shadow of the volcanoes.
I was driving from Prairieville to Ponchatula (yes they are real places) and I went past this little private landing overlooking the river. I stopped to take a photo and met Karl and Karen, weirdly fellow Aussies travelling around the US who were also stopped to take a pic. They were from... wait for it.... Burleigh Heads. We had a great catch up and both went on our ways. Its a small world and even in Woop Woop in Louisiana you can meet some neighbours...
Sometimes in the midst of all the craziness, mother nature just blows our mind. This was (obviously) Coachella Weekend 2 - 2016. It was the Friday evening and on the way to the bathroom I spotted this sky. After taking a couple of photos I was just standing there looking up in awe and then when I went to walk off, looking around, others were wondering what I was looking at and also stopped to admire this amazing pink sky. People were just looking up and smiling. A great moment.
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.
