Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Ground, rocks, sand, dirt, paths, walks, trails

My many hikes and walks tell me that I have to find the best ones for Cee…now that she gives us the opportunity to share them!

The levada walks in Madeira are marvellous. The stillness in the air and the soft scents along your walk make you never want it to end.

  The hiking trails in the Pyrenées can be rather difficult, but their beauty is outstanding. And so are the ”Pancakes” of New Zealand.

In New Zealand you can also find these magnificent boulders on a sandy beach of the South Island.

Finally something of Ground. From the magnificent plateau in the Himalayas – on the road to Lhasa, Tibet.

  4. Such excellent cloud cover in the last photo. It’s almost as if the clouds are descending from the sky…they look like candy-floss! My favourite shot of this set of photos. I like walking and hiking too. It’s always an adventure 🙂

    • Mmm, thank you – I took so many photos of those great plains and the clouds all seemed to hang about 50 metres from the ground only!

  5. Oh I can see how much you enjoyed this challenge Ann Christine looking at your lovely photos . It’s a great way to go looking at and remembering past travels isn’t it .
    I’ve only experienced one of these places… hiking up to the La Breche de Roland in the Pyrenees .. ahh KNEES … yes they were put to the test on the way down Lol
    Those rocks … amazing and weird … Anna who lives in Christchurch NZ created a great series of paintings of those unusual boulder rocks using her own photo as a prompt .http://annacull.com/2014/04/07/shoot-it-sketch-it-moeraki-two-wip/

  6. Those round rocks on the shore in NZ … surely they must have some special significance ? Like, be something to do with evolution …? I must see if I can find out …

    • ”The Moeraki Boulders are concretions created by the cementation of the Paleocene mudstone of the Moeraki Formation, from which they have been exhumed by coastal erosion.” According to Wikipedia.
      The larger boulders, 2 metres (6.6 ft) in diameter, are estimated to have taken 4 to 5.5 million years to grow while 10 to 50 metres (33 to 164 ft) of marine mud accumulated on the seafloor above them. Local Māori legends explained the boulders as the remains of eel baskets, calabashes, and kumara washed ashore from the wreck of Arai-te-uru, a large sailing canoe.

  7. great photos – I love the rounded boulders and the plateau in Tibet is fabulous. How wonderful for you to have seen it.
