Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Blue-Yellow

~~~~~

~~~~~

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

FOWChallenge-Adventure

~~~~~

adventure
noun
an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.

This was the start of our…

adventure to Wiseman, Alaska.


We flew over the wilds of Alaska…


…prior to landing at Coldfoot.

From Coldfoot it was a relatively short

coach ride to Wiseman.

 

A small town 63 miles North  of the Arctic Circle. 

Certainly and adventure and as far North

as we have ever been on our planet.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Incongruous

~~~~~

~~~~

My incongruous photos based on

my interpretation of the ‘seemingly’

out-of-place synonym

are all from Alaska.

A market at Anchorage provided us with

opportunities to photograph and be photographed

with two gorgeous Siberian Huskies.

A pleasure doing business with

an Australian in Anchorage.

 

Dinner in Fairbanks and we were surrounded by

cylinder recordings from bygone times.

Operated by a Chinese Australian who spends

half the year in Ketchikan and the other half

in Australia searching for opals.

A-Photo-a-Week-Challenge-Blue

~~~~~~

North American blues this week.

Our verandah view at the

Mike Wiegele Resort,

Blue River, Canada

We had a wonderful visit to

3,700 feet high Grouse Mountain…

 

where blue skies and icy snow packs gave us

something unusual to photograph.

We had been told of Beaver Tails so just had  to sample.

  Yum!

Although a cardiologist may not agree.

A few weeks later were soaring into the wild blue yonder

as we departed Fairbanks, in our bright blue plane,

crossing the Arctic Circle on our way

to Wiseman, Alaska.

Word-of-Day-Challenge-Freeze

~~~~~

~~~~

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.

Wits-End-PC-Strength

 

When I saw the challenge was strength… 

I immediately thought of elephants.


These gentle giants know they have the strength

to damage a vehicle but it is

only now and again they do so.   

And then it is probably a young male or rogue,

both of which have not been

disciplined by their family

On our first visit to Africa we were told

that if an elephant is in a bad mood

it will possibly rip you rear view mirror

from your car, then

hand it back through the window. 

Up until now I have only met happy elephants.
