I  think all but one image reflects my sub theme this week.First one of the several small water falls/features

in the Cascade Gardens

in Banff, Canada.

Athabasca Falls Alberta, Canada.

Another shot from Athabasca Falls,

Alberta, Canada.

Maligne Canyon Falls, Alberta, Canada.

While not strictly in keeping with the rest of my post

this leaf caught my eye as

I was leaving Maligne Canyon Falls.

However, it could be argued that these water droplets

would not be hanging around for much longer.

SUNDAY STILLS PHOTOS: Water

Although most of these photos are from

Vancouver Island we found plenty

of moving water in Canada.

Fountain outside Legislative Assembly Building,

Victoria, Vancouver Island.

 

This snail fountain can be found just inside

the Butchart Gardens gate.

Jumping to Alberta and Banff’s

Cascade Gardens provides this waterfall.

Known for its murals, Chemainus can be

discovered on Vancouver Island.

Finally, possibly my favourite Canadian fountain is the

Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens,

Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Finally, maybe a slightly different take on moving water.

We had to cross what seemed to be a fairly narrow path

each time we entered/exited our hotel in Victoria, BC.

The Parkside has some huge fish in this pond.

Scenes like these…

tree branches covered with snow…

capped off with falling snow were 

the perfect ingredients for…

for our visit to Canada’s

Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Just perfect…

We became empty nesters a few years ago.The absence of school fees freed up a handy few dollars.

Life had suddenly become comfortable…so,

when planning our recent holiday

and the question was posed…

Gold or Silver Leaf on the Rocky Mountaineer?

The comfort of Gold Leaf sounded appealing.

Week 4

Many years ago Simon and Garfunkel sang of

a vision softly creeping…

and it was certainly a vision which

softly crept up on us the morning

many of us saw falling snow for the first time.

and if we had tarried too long, we would…

certainly have been covered by that

freshly fallen silent shroud of snow.

Wits-End-Weekly-Prompt-Transportation

 

Two forms of transport I had not counted on in Canada.

My first, and probably last, ride in an Ice Explorer.

We were so pleased to see the wagons were covered.

The sky threatened rain…

the wind was cold and the covers made

a nice tunnel for it to rip along.

However, the barbeque was terrific

and well worth the ride..
