Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered in Sri Lanka


It has been a while since I did one of these challenges, but here I am back again. This theme inspired me to share some photos with you of my recent trip to Sri Lanka. Landscapes are of course naturally weathered, and a striking example is the Sigiriya Lion Rock (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) – a huge piece of granite that stands out 180 metres above the forest. It was created as a citadel by King Kassapa in the fifth century. It’s streaked with dark channels of water (it was, in fact, a rainy day) and worn by the heat of the sun. There are beautiful weathered tiles on old buildings, especially temples. And there are railway stations, fully functioning and busy, but a little worn around the edges.
