We spent a day out at the Lake Barrine, north of Cairns in Australia.
Having lunch out there and taking a boat ride in the lake is unforgettable.
Many of the beautiful pictures, however, have my wife in them. The only one which I can find without any person is posted here.
Very picturesque indeed!
Don’t think I can leave this challenge without submitting another entry.
The castle structures are now approximately 80 years old.
In building this park, Joe and his family has labored for many years.
Showing these images in sepia bring me back to the 1930s. I have much joy in sharing them!
This week’s photo challenge is One.
While strolling the courtyard of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, I couldn’t help taking a photo of this tree, with the boundary walls as background.
This is not the biggest tree I have ever seen; but the flowers on the tree are just beautiful!
Trees remind me of a poem I learned in school:
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
~Joyce Kilmer, “Trees,” 1914
Originally, I was thinking of posting just one Tree photo, but the re-discovery of this childhood poem has urged me to show the One tree photos which I like. These include:
…………….. only God can make a tree!
