Weekly Travel Theme: Ripples

Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack declared a “Ripples” theme for the week. I knew that I wanted more than just ripples in the water, although those can be really nice:

Looking up the definition of “Ripple” in the dictionary, I found the following:

“to form little waves or undulating movements on the surface, as water or grass stirred by a breeze… set in small folds as hair or cloth… alternately rising and falling like laughter…”

So here are two undulating, rippling landscape pictures:

Grasses rippled by wind

Then I found ripples on my windshield during the carwash:

And some flags rippling in the air:

Even trees seem to be sporting ripples on their bark:

And under the trees, there is a mushroom with its own ripples:

And this sunflower is not to be left out:

Even clouds incorporate the theme:

Even abandoned road barricades will do it:

A rodeo bull shows them:

Here is my favorite rebel farmer, Joel Salatin, of Swoope, Virginia, who is creating significant ripple effects with his new ways of integrated livestock farming:

An impressive iron gate:

And I leave you with my favorite, a golden water ripple picture:

    Oh wow – what an extensive interpretation of ripples! I loved the reference to Joel Salatin also. I didn’t realize he lived in Virginia.
