A window doorway.
Whatever you call it Maggie approved.
The view from
Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve
This window just had to be photographed.
It is the view out Buckland’s BnB, about a five-minute drive
from the Hobbit Movie Set near Matamata,
When booking our Rocky Mountaineer options…
…we decided to pay the extra for the Gold Leaf experience…
…as carriages with windows in the roof were
all that we had ever seen advertised.
The less expensive, Silver Leaf Carriages have a restricted view…
…with windows only in the sides of the carriage
and meals are eaten in your seat.
Gold Leaf guests have a downstairs dining room.
The above image shows one Gold Leaf Carriage
on the extreme right.
The lower row of windows is in the dining area.
The front 5 or 6 cars are Silver Leaf Carriages.
I think it may have been divine intervention
that made this image possible.
Day 1 and the peak was covered in clouds
while we visited Denali National Park.
The next day as we were travelling to Fairbanks
our coach driver pulled over so
we could capture shots like this one, of
North America’s highest peak
Alaska’s, Mount Denali.
The Million Dollar View at
Banff Springs Hotel
Geelong and the Western District.
And the views from…
…from God’s Window over South Africa’s
Blyde River canyon…
…can only be described as divine.
One of our last activities whilst on Safari in 2013,
was to walk with a cheetah,
at Tshukudu Game Lodge
which was only a 20-minute drive
from Sausage Tree Safari Camp.
More to the point was seeing these animals…
…sharing space with diners only a few feet away.
We had to wait a few minutes while
she returned from her morning hunt.
A truly unforgettable experience.
As stated last week this image was created
for the next macro challenge
which was Cee’s Midweek-Madness
January Macro last week.
Portarlington Terns… for Betty’s
