Weekly Photo Challenge – Delta

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of June 28, 2017 (picture that symbolizes transitions, change, and the passing of time).

This photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, in the Caves of the Drach (Cuevas del Drach)

The caves have formed by water being forced through the entrance from the Mediterranean Sea, and some researchers think the formation may date back to the Miocene Epoch. There is an underground lake situated in the caves called Martel Lake, which is about 115 m in length and 30 m in width, and its depth varies between four and twelve meters. It is named after the French explorer and scientist Édouard-Alfred Martel, who is considered the founding father of speleology (the study of caves). He was invited to explore the cave 1896. A German cave explorer, M.F. Will, had mapped the White and Black cave in 1880. Martel found two more caves, as well as the underground lake.(Wikipedia)

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y2-06

Paula at Lost in Translation presented us a challenge:  Traces of the past Y2-06.

I decided to post this photo taken in Switzerland, is about the medieval astronomical Zytglogge, which in Bernese German means “time bell”.

The Zytglogge is a landmark medieval tower in Bern, Switzerland. Built in the early 13th century, it has served the city as guard tower, prison, clock tower, centre of urban life and civic memorial.

Bern’s most famous Old Town sight, this ornate clock tower once formed part of the city’s western gate (1191–1256). Crowds congregate to watch its revolving figures twirl at four minutes before the hour, after which the chimes begin. The clock tower supposedly helped Albert Einstein hone his special theory of relativity, developed while working as a patent clerk in Bern (Wikipedia).

Dom Fernando II e Glória is a wooden-hulled, 50 gun frigate of the Portuguese Navy. She was launched in 1843 and made her maiden voyage in 1845. Built at the shipyard of Daman in Portuguese India, it was Portugal’s last sailing warship to be built and also the last ship that undertook the Carreira da Índia (India Run), a regular military line that connected Portugal to its colonies in India since the beginning of the 16th century.(Wikipedia)
