Explore The Elements : Earth, Water, Air and Fire

This is an attempt to explore 4 elements namely Earth, Water, Air and Fire through a few photographs. Explore The Elements is a Travel Photoblogging Challenge organized by Thomas Cook.

Lets start exploring the element Earth, where we all are living.

Earth is a beautiful place indeed.

It can be very soft..

Soft, muddy land

At times it can be very harsh too..

Harsh deserts

Or very rough and tough

Also it can be hard and Stubborn

Hard Rocks Caring the soft water

We can see that however tough the earth looks, it takes care and protects the water.

This leads to the exploration of next element Water.

Be like still water that gives you a true reflection of the self.

Reflections on water
Colourful Reflections on water

Or be like flowing water that is moving so freely

Free flowing water

And make intrinsic patterns that comes with that freedom.

And flow around the obstacles with all your might towards the goal

Flowing around the obstacles

And be a free spirit to enjoy the freedom like flowing water

Talking of the free bird, they are the kings and queens of sky. That leads to our next element, Air.

Fly high in the air, fly above your obstacles

Flying high
Flying high

And enjoy the majestic flight..

Or be really become a free bird and enjoy life to its fullest

And expand your life and go up with air like lightness..

Or maybe like smoke..

Smoking up

Yes, the smoke that signals the starting of Fire.

Fire isn’t fun to play with, but some rituals involves fire play

Step back and enjoy the beauty of all consuming fire..

And talk about life sitting around it

And laugh at life’s problems..

The photographs are fantastic.. as well as your knack of describing it all in a few words. That makes the post all the more interesting.
keep up the great work..and keep travelling to all those interesting places 🙂


first two *fire shots …sorry 😛 🙂


Awesome…and I knew it 🙂 earth shots are great, especially the way you connected them with your words and I love the first two fore shots. Nice warm glow of fire looks beautiful. All the best for contest. However, need to mark one photo as official entry in each category. I missed it first in my post. Later updated as ThomasCook told me on twitter.
