Weekly Photo Challenge : Near and Far

This week challenge : Near and Far

Living in Mexico allows me to satisfy my curiosity about Mayan ruins.  And play with perspective as much as I can.  These 2 pictures were taken recently at Mayapan site, a few kilometers out of Merida, Yucatan Peninsula.

Next is an oldie as well, which I wanted to share because I truly like it : it dates back to February 2011, at Irazú Volcano, Costa Rica, when I tried different points of view and change my usual perspective.  A prequel to Near and Far Weekly Photo Challenge, maybe…

    1. Merci! ce rouge flamboyant (c’est d’ailleurs le nom de l’arbre) était ce que je visais au début pour la photo puis j’ai voulu changer d’angle d’attaque et de perspective; je suis assez contente du résultat et de tous vos beaux et bons commentaires!

    1. Thank you for your wonderful and inspiring comment! Your pictures were awesome too, very diverse and expressing much different options of the theme. I particularly liked the one from Pointe du Hoc in France and the beach there because of all it also conveys when you know what happened there; the « far » means a lot…

      and the chinese proverb!
      Thanks again for stopping by!

  1. Hi Jul’
    These are breathtaking photos. I love the colors and my favorite is the first one. Great captures!

  2. I like the abstract quality of the first photo and the perspective of the second one. Would love to visit the Mayan ruins one day.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment!
      I’m still having trouble having the whole picture clear sometimes but other times, it just comes out that way and gives it an unexpected quality.
      That’s what photo challenges are for!

      1. I know what you mean! It’s like you don’t have to do anything else but to click. 🙂 Excited to see your next entry to the photo challenge!

        1. I’m new to it, only my 3rd entry today but I’m quite excited because every time, a picture just came straight into my mind after I read the challenge! Hope it’ll continue like that!

          Keep clicking too!
