Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wood

The third element in Cee’s Challenge is Wood. I invite you to visit places where you can find beautiful wood art works. We will start at the north, in Lithuania, where we will visit lake natural park Aukštaitija with its Beekeeping Museum. The next stop is in Neringa (also Lithuania), in a small village called Juodkranté, where is “witches” hill with lots of wooden sculptures, place full of stories, history and creativity. Finally I will take you pretty far to Yemen, to wadi Hadramawt, around town called Shibam, maybe you have heard about Desert Manhattan? I will show you doors, locks, door latches carved from the wood.

    A very interesting variety of wood photo’s. Great entry for the challenge. I think you’ve covered every type of wood. The doors and windows are always fascinating to me.
    Very nice …

    I absolutely loved visiting the Hill of Witches in Juodkrantė. My favorite sculptures were of the giantess Nerija 😉 and Eglė, Queen of Serpents.
