NEXT WEEK’S CHALLENGE –

LINKS

Friday Foto Finder; Snowflake

Living in Perth, I see no snow.

However, I have a cyber-sister who tangles string.

She sent me a tatted snowflake some years ago.

Next week the subject will be; “LINKS”.

(With apologies for being late this week – My internet connection broke for a couple of days.)

Friday Foto Finder; Thicket

On one part of the foreshore of Perth’s Swan River is a large lawned area.

In one section is the remnant vegetation of a swamp which has been filled in.

The river was behind me as I took this image.

To protect the soil and the undergrowth a boardwalk has been constructed through the swamp-loving Melaleucas

Which have created a  wonderful thicket in the middle of a city.

Friday Foto Finder; Rook

When I think of a “Rook” I see it in the corner of a chessboard.

Or moving around on that chessboard.

Or, if it is MY rook, back in the box :(

These are two rooks from my favourite chess set.

It is white to move and I am black  – – -

Friday Foto Finder; Lighthouse

Halfway up the coast of Western Australia is Exmouth Gulf.

A sharp point where the coast stops heading North and turns North-East.

About halfway up that little point is a small promontery named Point Vlaming after one of the early Dutch explorers.

It was considered a little dangerous to shipping and o a lighhouse was erected.

On the landward side of the point is a large semi-sheltered bay (Exmouth Gulf), now the source of many of Western Australia’s prawns (The giant shrimps)

During WW2 this was a staging post for the Allied navies and the steel structure in the forground was a radar. The sign explains what happened.
