A Word a Week Photo Challenge – Island

It seems I preempted this week’s challenge when I published my post on Santorini a couple of weeks ago. This weeks Word a Week Photo Challenge set by Sue over at A Word In Your Ear is ‘Island.’

So, I thought I’d take you to another beautiful Greek island, Crete. We spent 3 weeks there a few years ago staying in a wonderful villa with its own pool and views over the ocean. Many a pleasant evening was spent eating dinner on the balcony of my room, drinking the local red wine or the lethal Greek Metaxa, as the sun set casting a pink glow over the town below.

Yet another place I would love to go back to.

Once again, thanks to Sue for providing another A Word a Week photo challenge. This week’s word ’round’ can be applied to so many different things and already my fellow bloggers have provided a diverse group of photos. Here’s my contribution.

A Word a Week Photo Challenge: Clouds

After an insanely hot few days, with more heat to come, Mother Nature sent the storms our way and as 2012 prepared for its last day she provided an amazing display of her abilities to throw colour at a canvas and create a masterpiece.

Thanks to Sue for your word a week challenge of ‘Clouds’ that gave me the opportunity to share what was in my own back garden.
