WordPress Photo Challenge : Monument

This may not be a monument in the same category as the Taj Mahal or Eiffel Tower but it is a monument to the power of the wind and how nature can adapt and still survive.

A classic example of going with the flow.

Windswept trees of the Greenhough Plains

We noticed these trees as we drove to Geraldton. Greenough is only 20 minutes south of Geraldton and is a small historic settlement, so we will be coming back to explore this area after we have settled into our new home. 

In the meantime I would like to present these trees as my interpretation of this weeks WP Photo challenge

  1. Of course these posts did not show up in my reader!


    • I think the reader has a problem or two some times, some one else mentioned that photos don’t always show. I think the “Happiness Engineers” may have been tweaking things at their end… 😦


  2. A very interesting post. I love your take on this theme!
