‘Explore The Elements’ Photo Contest 2015


If you have been following my blog for a while now, you probably know that I am a BIG travel photography fanatic. I devour landscapes, colours and possibly anything that interests my eyes. So, when this amazing ‘Explore The Elements’ Photo Contest was announced by Thomas Cook, I knew I had to participate.

‘Explore The Elements’ simply calls for the four supernatural elements of the universe – Earth, Air, Water and Fire to be depicted through photographs.

To learn more about the contest, click here.

My entries -

EARTH
- Represents the hard, solid objects of the earth associated with stubbornness, collectiveness, physicality and gravity.

I had taken this photo in Hampi, which showcases the sturdy boulders along with the unruffled hills in the background.  

   
WATER
- Represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world associated with emotion, defensiveness, adaptability, flexibility, suppleness, and magnetism.

I had taken this photo in Goa that highlights the free-spirited waves at a beach.


FIRE
- Represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world associated with security, motivation, desire, intention, and an outgoing spirit.

I had taken this photo at a Dargah (shrine) in Bhuj that showcases the ongoing desire for life and eternity.

AIR
- Represents things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement associated with will, elusiveness, evasiveness, benevolence, compassion, and wisdom.

I had taken this photo in a garden in Hampi, which depicts one of the most beautiful and natural forms of love. I believe love is as natural as breathing and thus, it's like air, which has no boundaries.

And now I nominate the following 5 travel bloggers who I think love travel photography as much as I do –

Francis Cassidy of The stray photographer
Michael Hodson of Go See Write
Justin Carmack of True Nomads
Alberto Molero of Wild Junket
Dan & Linda of As We Saw It
