The challenge (see below for full details) is to depict four elements in photographic form. I have seen some of the entries and aesthetically there are some awesome entries from extremely talented photographers. I just decided to go wit h the first four images that sprang to mind for each element, so here goes:
So there you have it, my photographic take on the four elements. Competition details below:
Welcome to the Thomas Cook Explore the Elements photo blogging competition. It’s all about capturing and expressing the four elements through travel photography.
We’re looking for bloggers to publish photographs they’ve taken which best represent one of the four elements. All the categories are open to your interpretation, so you can be free to take a picture of anything you feel showcases your chosen element.
Once the competition has finished our panel of leading travel experts will come together to select the best photos. Each judge will preside over one category picking a winner from each before they collectively choose an overall winner.
The four individual category winners will receive a MacBook Air, a Fujifilm X-T1 camera, or an iPhone 6 with Bose noise cancelling headphones, depending on their personal choice. The overall winner will be awarded an amazing £5,000 travel fund. Keep up with the conversation using the official hashtag #ExploreTheElements

Thanks Madhu, still learning so thanks for the tip! Glad you liked the little gallery – are you an air sign by any chance? The condors were majestic. They sat on the rocky outcrop for 1 hr 55 and then just launched off when we had 5 minutes left of our visit!
