divine

 

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

 

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.

spectacle

 

North America’s highest peak

Alaska’s, Mount Denali, 

provided a spectacle when it broke

through surrounding clouds

Topping out at 20,310 feet

above sea level it dominates

other mountain peaks in

Denali National Park.

I have used nature to provide me with

some brightness this week.

Amazing how bright an area look with

some yellow or other bright colour…

…popping among the greenery.

 

 

This yellow and purple combination

was captured at  Denali in Alaska.

The above image (marigolds?)

is from Juneau in Alaska.

Geelong grown Dahlias…

…and way past its best a home grown anemone.

Finally, nothing could be much brighter than

our very own starr as it lights up

a lone catamaran

on Corio Bay.

Originally thought that all I had was… 

a passing shot of a Denali moose

for this week.

 

 

Then remembered that Kookaburras

easily qualified.

These are wild ‘pets’

 

 

Not sure if it is a

Kangaroo or a Wallaby

but it found a home in our trees. 

 

 

 

Rosella Parrot

 

 

Just had to include these woolly sheep…

 

Woolly sheep as opposed to these which are

off shears (have been shorn)

about a month ago.

Along Victoria’s South West Coastline

stand the Twelve Apostles.

Made from soft limestone these cliff faces…

clearly show each layer of the stone…

 

 

…as it was formed.

A view of features of some of

the National Parks visited

during the past few years.

Denali National Park, Alaska.

After spending eight hours in a cramped bus

we finally managed some clear captures

on our way to Fairbanks the next day

of a clear, though distant, Mt Denali.

Our first sighting of a lion pride in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa

Our first and only leopard sighting in

Kruger National Park,

South Africa

Our first evening and sunset in

Chobe National Park, Botswana.

This sun was setting on Namibia,

just across the Chobe River.

We never can see another country

while standing in Australia.

Even the northern tip of Cape York is 150km

from New Guinea’s southern coast and there is

no place on Cape York high enough

to see New Guinea.

Much closer to home is the

Port Campbell National Park.

The home of the Twelve Apostles

and many other places well worth visiting.
