This week’s challenge by the Daily Post is to illustrate ‘change’. From dawn onwards landscapes undergo an almost indiscernable change in colour ….
While we were in Sri Lanka in January this year we went on an early morning safari. We left the campsite at 5.30am in order to arrive at the gates of the Yala national park when it opened at 6am.
We watched the sun rise, throwing a roosting peacock into sharp relief
as the sun rose higher the landscape slowly changed colour
the grey shape of an elephant emerged from the undergrowth
herons stirred in the trees and soon took flight
a painted stork fished for breakfast
but it was soon disturbed by a hungry croc
the sambar deer lost some of their camouflage
a male peacock took advantage of the changing light to show off its plumage to a number of bored-looking females
a mongoose hunted for breakfast, quite oblivious of our presence
with the sun fully risen an elephant was majestically revealed standing in the middle of a swamp
What does ‘change’ mean to you. The Daily Post has lots of links to explore on this topic. If you don’t look at how other people view the world why not make a change in your life, visit some of them, and perhaps, if inclined, leave them a friendly comment?
