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.

chill

 

All my chill images should have

provided us with a chilling experience…

 

…unfortunately, the opposite was true.

Although it was snowing on

Canada’s Athabasca Glacier in Alberta, 

moving around kept us warm.

 

Even our visit to

Alaska’s Mendenhall Glacier

was undertaken in bright sunshine.

I must confess wearing more than

a cotton shirt on the

glacier visits though.

During recent years,  Griffin Gully

has proven to be a wonderful spot

for Blue Hour…

 

…and sunrise photos…

…all year round.

New Zealand’s,

Tongariro National Park

Taken from a digitised version of Super 8 movie film,

atop Ayres Rock (now Uluru) in Central Australia.

Twenty-four year-old Woolly

With The Olgas in the background,

it was a wondrous experience.

Commencing with the

Million Dollar View

at Banff in Canada.

A bit closer to some is

New Zealand’s,

Mount Ruapehu

on the North Island.

One of my favourite Australian views.

Since 2005 we have lived much closer to…

 

…Geelong’s Corio Bay.

 

In no particular order…

…these are but a few of my sunrise images.

The Million Dollar View

Fairmont Hotel Banff, Canada.

Originally this view was where hotel staff

were to be housed…at the back of the building.

It didn’t take long before staff were moved

to a less desirable location and paying guests

were housed in the

Million Dollar View

wing.

 

Sun up on Corio Bay

A foggy morning at Griffin Gully, Geelong.

Another Griffin Gully morning.

One of my morning shoots between

Lockdowns 2 and 3 last year.

I was waiting for the sun to break through

just left of this shot and just could not believe

the difference between the cool sea

in front of me and what appears

to be a boiling sea in this image.

Nothing like a clear blue sky,

canola in bloom and some

gnarled old eucalypts.

Another of my favourites from

Geelong’s, Corio Bay.

One image I have yet to capture

is just prior to a summer sunset

when the reflected light from the hulls

appears much brighter than in this shot.
