Just had to have a photo taken at Forty Degrees below Zero.

The cold penetrated denim very easily and

I am constantly reminded that the

temperature gauge is not showing 40 below! 🙂

Considering anything below ten degrees Celsius

is shiver time during winter

a few minutes in there was enough.

These may not be conisdered magical lights by some…

and I may have been a bit carried away with my shooting…

 

but all these photos were taken between…

2200 hours and 0300 hours.

And true the Disney Wonder was lit up,

but she appeared to be a buoy

when I first sighted her around 2300,

so far astern we were.

And it took us the best part of an hour’s sailing to over take her.

It was moments like these that I was happy

to have a touch of insomnia.

If not magical lights then certainly magical experiences

  to  be able to capture sunset skies long after

we could in Victoria…Down Under.

In late June 2018…

we visited Wiseman, Alaska.

Wiseman is 63 miles, or 101 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.

Only eleven people live at Wiseman and

while it looked gorgeous in summer,

stories about Wiseman winters

made us want to head south.

Although I have to confess the scenery was spectacular..

A few weeks ago we visited

Whakarewarewa Maori Village

in Rotorua New Zealand. 

I’m not sure that I would like to live with geysers

and geothermal pools in my back yard. 

However, at least one could stay warm all year. 

 

 

A Victorian winter’s day, where all you have

to think of is whether to take a coat…or not.

The North American Rockies seemed

a good starting point for rugged scenery.

These first two images are from

an excursion inland from Skagway…

both depicting the ruggedness of the Rocky Mountains.

 

The highlight of our cruise waas visiting Glacier Bay.

Truly magnificent is an apt description

of the scenery and the experience.

A fence needed to keep us out of the water

in Ketichikan, Alaska. The red clover leaf style sign is owned by

an Australian who uses

Australian Opal and Alaskan gold

to manufacture jewellery. 

 Never expected a fence on the Mendenhall Glacier.

Its purpose was to protect these puppies.
