July 2018 – Daily Photo Challenge

An endemic blushing snail picture is part of our July 2018 collection, taken on a visit to the Peaks, the highest place on the island. A brand new Embraer E190, call sign ZS-YAJ making its first landing at HLE Airport was photo of the day on 28 July. And of course, we couldn’t leave out France winning the World Cup on Day 196.

July 2018 daily photos include a burning candle, locals Stedson Stroud and Vanessa Williams, Plantation House, a Briars rainbow and red chillies.
