This week’s travel theme is ‘Intense’, and that’s a rather difficult one, for I find it hard to write about that subject without descending into a grammar-police-style rant.
You see, although it’s a good word at the moment, it could, if overused, or worse, misused, it could become a meaningless cliché.
Do any reading, or listen to anyone speaking, and everything from the Great Barrier Reef to the latest album from some famous-for-being-famous nonentity is ‘awesome’. Which doesn’t do the Great Barrier Reef any favours … that really is awesome.
Another thing the Great Barrier Reef is, though, is ‘intense’ … in the true sense of the word. Alas, I can’t capture those intense colours without more sophisticated (and expensive) photographic equipment than I possess at the moment.
So, I’ll just make myself a coffee (‘intense’ flavour, it says here!) and try to find some pictures with equally intense colour in them.
