Images & Words # Week 66 ~ The Look of Nature

Hello From Australia this Week 66 and Welcome to Images and Words.

I thought I would give you all a fairly broad spectrum for this weeks Images And Words.

So the theme is All about Nature and is Titled

The Look Of Nature

The photo I have chosen below was taken on Kangaroo Island in South Australia at the very interesting Rock Arch named Admiral's Arch, which nature formed in this very remote area of the island. It was sculpted by weathering and erosion from the sea over thousands of years.
Here you can also observe a colony of New Zealand Fur-seals as they feed, swim and laze on the shore platform below.

When I first went to view the arch twenty five years ago it was accessible only by a small walking track. However these days Admirals Arch can be easily reached from a boardwalk at Cape du Couedic. A photographers dream this Arch and the surrounding area has become and even though it is quite accessible you are always aware that you have entered the wild side of natures domain.

Have fun and remember you do have a week to post your I&W.

Cheers From Milli.




The Rules:

Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.

Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words.

Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene .

Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.

All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here.

New topics will be posted on Sundays.

Posts can be made through Saturday.

One post per person only please.

  8. Thanks Joel and I bet you have a beauty up your sleeve there too!

  9. See you soon Sophie with your special effort.

  10. Milli, this is a shot fit to grace the cover of Nat Geo!

    The quotation is perfect for this photo and is certainly true to the heart of this girl. I was just telling someone I would love to escape to the wilderness somewhere, where there is only nature as far as the eye can see. It is a perpetual longing. Thank God for National Parks, otherwise we might soon have nothing left of nature to enjoy.

    Nice challenge, thank you for hosting!

  11. You are welcome Debby and I understand exactly your longing right now for natures best.
    I truly hope that our travels this week from post to post will give us all that natural high which nature intended.

  12. Thank you Milli for this beautiful theme! Your photo is so beautiful and the words are very true!

    Here is my contribution:

  13. We suffered a black out while I was trying to comment on this gorgeous photo, and it looks like my comment didn't make it. I love how this photo has detail in shadow, as well as the daylight being perfectly exposed. It's a such a lovely scene and a wonderful composition of it.

    I'll be back later with my entry. What a wonderfully open theme :-)

  14. Stunning words and a breathtaking picture .... a truly wonderful entry!!

  15. A beautiful sea scape.

    Here's mine. It's Sunday and I feel inspired. I hope you enjoy it. There is an attachment. A beautiful gospel song by Mahalia Jackson.

  16. Cheers Milli and I love the way you framed this picture.
    What a view through the arches.
    We have a place like this in Oregon where you can see the Sea Lions, but
    you can't get as a dramatic of a picture.

  17. Wonderful theme Milli, As always... And What a perfect shot to depict the theme and
    Great Words to go with it.

  18. I have one this week. Off to hit the books after I post, but I look forward to seeing the entries. I love the shot posted above.

  19. Thank you very much! Your words ring true. Gorgeous image Milli. Wonderful perspective, perfect lighting and I can almost smell the ocean ;-).

  20. We sure do Milli you are one awesome lady and spirit. I salute you... This photo is amazing.

  21. Such a gorgeous photo, Milli, and beautiful words. Love this theme. I've been having so much trouble with Multiply and Flickr lately, I almost gave up again this week. But persistence is my middle name, and was finally able to post one!

  22. Just half hour ago, we got rain and lightning. Much needed rain
    Haven't been anywhere lately, to see any of this Beautiful Nature.
    So It Came to Me ! Yours is awesome !
