5 in 5 - MELANIE - June 2015

 Melanie is my friend who lives in Australia and she loves photography. Every month Melanie has taken part in this monthly neme and we managed to find a way round her not having a blog by posting here. I love that we have found a way for her to take part!
This month (despite being in the middle of her holiday to South Africa) Melanie has remembered '5in5' and been organised enough to send me photos. I am impressed and very grateful! What's more I have enjoyed seeing other photos that Melanie has taken so I am taking opportunity to show you these too simply because it seems a shame not to!!  So over to you Melanie:
'We left Botswana on Thursday and it seems like a dream that we were so close to so many wild animals.  The lions were especially incredible.  They had no worry at all by a safari vehicle parking close to them.  The driver said if anyone were to get out or make lots of noise that would be out of the ordinary and that would cause unpredictable behaviour from the lions but things they are used to cause them no problems. Then the elephants there were literally hundreds of them.  One girl we spoke to said during one night at a nearby waterhole 400 elephants could pass by'.
But back now to 5 in 5.....
'My photos this month are taken in a place called Aulhas.  This is a small town on the southern most point of South Africa where the Indian Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean.  There is an incredibly beautiful rocky shore here and a lighthouse based on the Pharos of Alexandrian.  This lighthouse was the third lighthouse to be built in South Africa and the light was first lit in March 1849. I climbed to the top of the lighthouse no staircase just ladders and the final of four ladders was very wobbly. Outside at the top of the lighthouse it was very windy, thankfully there was a rail to hold on to.  Hope you enjoy the photos'.

Wow!!  This looks an amazing trip!  

Melanie is next headed for UK so over the next month we plan to meet up and I am really looking forward to seeing her.  Mean while, a big thank you to Melanie for remembering and taking the time to send me photos while on her travels. I am full of gratitude.
And if this has inspired you to pick up your camera and take part in this challenge you have until 25th before this months link closes.
It's great fun and this post should answer any questions or give other information that you need.  And you don't need to go anywhere exciting to take photos, as my own post this month shows.
To see this and more links for this month just go here and
 hopefully I'll be back with more photos from Melanie and myself next month. I hope you will join us and thanks for popping by!
