As I follow Voyager for life – Renuka’s Blog I received email notification of her new blog post yesterday. It was on Thomas Cook Explore the Elements Photo Contest. As soon as I saw her post on the same I felt the urge to take part in this wonderful travel photoblogging contest. The contest is about submitting at least one photograph representing each of the basic elements of the world – Earth, Water, Fire and Air. You can visit the link for more details of the contest – Explore The Elements.

Following are my entries for the contest:  

Earth

Represents the hard, solid objects of the earth associated with stubbornness, collectiveness, physicality and gravity.

Dewdrops on the petals of the periwinkle in a resort in Almora, Uttarakhand. I can associate it with adaptability of water. It reminds me how water changes from one form to another and continues nature’s cycle.

Fire

Represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world Associated with security, motivation, desire, intention, and an outgoing spirit.
