I’m joining Becky in her February Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B. The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word Odd, referencing one of these definitions: different to what is usual or expected, or strange; a number of items, with one left over as a remainder when divided by two; happening or occurring infrequently and irregularly, or occasionally; separated from a usual pair or set and therefore out of place or mismatched. Look for #SquareOdds.
While we didn’t travel as much as usual in 2021, we were fortunate to enjoy several holidays in our home state of Queensland and one short trip over the border in New South Wales. Join me this month in a retrospective look at the very odd year of 2021.
Yetman NSW, February 2021
Our campsite on a property not far from Yetman was stunning. From the bank of the Macintyre River, we had gorgeous views over the water and across the paddocks.
On our first evening we were treated to a glorious sunset.
But those ominous clouds were a warning of what was to come later that night.
A wild storm passed directly overhead, with heavy rain and lightning strikes in the bush nearby. Thunder rumbled around us for hours. As we sheltered in our caravan, I tried to capture the extraordinary light show outside, as huge lightning bolts lit up our campsite.
Over and over again, the freakish display of natural power turned night into day
before fading away again in seconds.
We should have taken more notice of those clouds.
