Explore the Elements

We’ve been nominated for Thomas Cook’s “Explore the Elements” challenge by our good friends over at The Migrant Expats (thanks guys!).

In this photo blogging competition we have been asked to submit four photos, each representing the four essential elements: Earth, Water, Fire & Air.

After much deliberation, we came up with  four photos which we feel best exemplify the requirements of the challenge. Our intention is to showcase the evocative, mysterious and wondrous images of the four elements captured during our most recent adventures. Thank you for reading and we hope you enjoy our entries!
