John, many congrats on your win! Now I know this is simply a typo on your part, (the caption on your photo is correct), however your picture of Seaton is in fact here in Sidmouth. 😀
Next time you're down this way, pop in for a socially distanced cup of coffee in the garden!

Cheers

Tony

Thanks for that, Tony.  Wednesday afternoon brain fade obviously kicked in.  I should know my own county - even if it is t'other end.  Thanks for the offer.  Though should we meet you might consider the space between Sidmouth and Plymouth to be barely enough social distancing. 😁

Plenty of distance here John, we can tempt you with a half an acre garden c/w  a  woodland area -  a hundred hydrangeas under a 90ft Monterey Cyprus - my favourite place for a coffee.
Take care, welcome any time, Tony

Something fascinating happens with water and the sandstone and limestone cliffs in Zion National Park. I imagine geologists and botanists here could probably give me some good keywords to add. I would appreciate it....

My three, smoke on the water…

 

Ever wondered what happens if you use a plastic play-pen to recreate a Cornish tin mine, complete with smoking chimney?
Well, this happens... 😃

Last second entry! 

 

1) Fire & Air:

Mascleta (a daytime fireworks display, wonderfully loud and with the rest of the festival part of UNESCO's immaterial world heritage) during the Fallas of Valencia on March 8 2020, just days before the lockdown in Spain, and shot by the most famous female pyrotechnician on woman's day...

2) Earth & Water:

Baltic sea and the white cliffs of Rügen, Germany. 

turquoise-waters-of-the-baltic-sea-and-w

 

3) Fire, Water (well, ice), Earth & Air:

On Myrdalsjökull glacier in Iceland. Where is the fire you ask? The black material on the ground you see there is not just regular gravel, but ashes from the infamous Eyjafjallajökull volcano. Where is the air you ask? Well - we all remember Europe's air traffic back then don't we...
