Friendly Friday Photo Challenge – Remote

Friendly Friday Photography Challenge

Have you ever visited a remote place, off the beaten track? Places in regions or locations so remote you are unlikely ever to meet another tourist? Perhaps you live in such an area?

This is the theme for this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge.

Perhaps the prompt, “Remote” means something entirely different for you.

This week’s prompt was inspired by Chris from the blog lifeofrileyow.com who is currently travelling to the very remote regions of North western and Central North Australia.

Let’s share some remote photos from around the world on Friendly Friday!

    1. That day I stood overlooking the mountains on the top of the world at the border of Norway and Sweden with my good friends, will remain in my memory for ever. As you know, I have a deep connection with Scandinavia and I was really in the elements that I love so much. I wonder why remote places give us a sense of freedom?

      1. Thank you 🙏🏼 😊
        No SLR. All taken on my iPhone.
        Though it will be interesting as my daughter progresses with her passion for photography and we do end up with a digital SLR!
        Maybe she will teach me something 😉

    1. I am so glad you like the topic this week, Suburban tracks, but did you mean the abandoned or remote topic? The pingback here takes me to a beautiful post on Abandoned places in Bavaria, which I was very glad to read.

      1. Please note that it would be much easier for me to write in my mother-tongue which is German. Using a foreign language means also to think in a different way than your daily life. Moreover, English words are used partially in a different manner by Indians or US-Americans what makes it not simpler for people like me. So your question regarding remote and abandoned is going in this direction for me, and I usually prefer a more poetical approach in this regard beyond the understanding of a dictionary. So I do not see any real contradiction respectively. Hope, this explains the matter for you.

      2. I am Australian, not American but understand what you meant about language. I was only referring to the different themes we have each week on “Friendly Friday”
        This week is REMOTE and last time was ABANDONED.

    1. Thanks ever so much, Klodo. Norway is – well where do I start. So close to my heart and fantastic. Really spectacular. Many people and even marketing sells New Zealand as being the southern version of Norway, but I disagree with that proposal. Can you check your pingback for me, as my computer is sending me to redawgTs’s blog – maybe I have been hacked?

    1. The post worked if you felt that sense of isolation and remoteness. I wanted to find something from remote Australia, but had no digital copy to share. Perhaps Chris Riley will provide that for me in her upcoming posts on her trip she is currently on.
      I am excited at the prospect of visiting the Slovenian mountains. You know how I love that kind of country!

    1. I am glad it inspired you to travel for photography and maybe vacation reasons too, Sophia. I will take a look at your link tomorrow. Have a busy day and evening ahead of me first. Thanks for joining in.

  1. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words
    in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet
    browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue solved
    soon. Kudos I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and
    bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be
    a lot more useful than ever before. Does your website have a contact
    page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot
    you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be
    interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.

      1. Oh, I do try! Don’t always succeed though…Summer is a busy time, and we have no connection in the summer house. Thanks for the lovely challenges!

    1. You are well positioned for posting a remote themed post! The rusty corrugated iron roof and the long view of low to medium hills speaks a lot about Australia and typical of our varied environment. Would you share the location of the hut or the mountains?

      1. The old hut is on the road to The Gorge on the Clarence River just up the road from my place. Not sure of the mountain range in the distance perhaps the Gibraltar Range. So glad you liked that image Amanda. It was quite like yours.

    1. Not cheating at all, Chris! I was inspired by your recent trip to use that as a topic. Nevertheless, I was very interested to read about the remote cattle station in the Gulf! What an experience. I doubt I could cope with that level of isolation! I am so dependent on being able to summon help or call someone or get something. And the roads! It is wonderful that there are folk who enjoy this lifestyle but it isn’t for me. It is sad that a country such as ours could not do better for folks who choose this lifestyle, in terms of communication. Then again, we all coped without mobile phones for many a year, perfectly adequately. Thanks for your contribution. No trouble at all on the time frame. Your posts are always welcome! Thanks ever so much for joining in. Very interesting post.
