window

an opening in the wall or roof of a building or vehicle,
fitted with glass in a frame to admit light or air
and allow people to see out.

A window doorway.

Whatever you call it Maggie approved.

 

The view from

Gods Window

over the

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve

South Africa

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,

New Zealand

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.

Golden Plains between

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.

These are wild animals.

We had to wait a few minutes while

she returned from her morning hunt.

A truly unforgettable experience.
