Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

WPC: Silence

via Photo Challenge: Silence

I am a bit dubious about a challenge that asks for silence but then illustrates it with a picture of the ocean – at Big Sur – and states

The only sounds came from the ocean, the birds, and the chapel bells that rang several times a day.

Sorry Cheri that does not sound like silence to me. Now, on the top of a mountain there might be birdsong – and probably the noise of the wind – but I do not recall there was much of either at this location. Manning Park, southern BC, and in what the map said were “subalpine meadows” next to Blackwall Peak (2063m). One of the quietest places I can recall because at the end of September there were very few people.

Pingback notes  the top link takes you to a much earlier WordPress challenge – not today’s photo challenge. That is embedded in the text above the map. Odd how often WordPress challenges muck up pingbacks. The first one comes from using the “post about silence” tag in the WordPress reader version. The second from the instructions from the DailyPost version.
