Hello friends,

“Markings” is the prompt this week at Our Beautiful World.


The definition of the word on Merriam-Webster is a mark, shape, or word that is written or drawn on something; a pattern of marks or coloration as on a plant or animal and the act or process of giving a grade to a student’s work.  With this in mind I share the following photos this week. (Click on the image for a larger view)

I photographed these road markings in the Golden Gate  National Park, Free State, South Africa. This beautiful park is nestled in the rolling foothills of the Maluti Mountains and covers an area of 340 kilometers (130 sq mi).


What a beautiful pattern of coloration on this Amaryllis photographed in my garden!


These words are written on the outside wall of the St. Peter’s Church, Sabie, Mpumalanga, South Africa. The church was constructed and completed in 1913 and has been used for Sunday worship every Sunday since then.


Zebra markings on this South African taxi I spotted when attending a conference in Pretoria.


Thanks for visiting today. I hope to see more “markings” in future to capture with my camera. Have a wonderful day.
