I have experienced many moments of wonder. Moments in time when I stand transfixed in front of a sight so outstandingly beautiful it sends tingles down my spine and the world around me suddenly takes on a glow, a stillness. I feel in awe and will remember this moment for ever.
July last year I travelled to the red centre of Australia for the first time and saw Uluru. Surrounded by other tourists it was still a sight of natures magnificence
But the moment that magic happened was after most of the tourist buses had left and we waited to see the full moon appear from behind this huge monolith. Gradually it crept out to bathe the surrounding countryside in an aura of peace. A photo does not do it justice because it was being there, the stillness of the night, the feeling of observing a special moment that cannot be captured in an image. It was a moment of wonder I will remember for ever.
I did enjoy being part of Word Press photo challenge each week and when it stopped I missed looking forward to it. So I was pleased when 4 bloggers started another photo challenge and for the first week it is “Wonder” and here are the rules if you would like to join in.
