Known as the million dollar view

we did find this view breathtaking.

Taken at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel

This was the view from the staff quarters,

until a remodelling ‘fixed’ that.

Patrick and I both visited

Jasper National Park (Alberta)

this week for our posts.

Maligne Valley Gorge Falls.

Although the sign read

Maligne Canyon.

 

 

Athabasca Falls

Both attractions are in

Jasper National Park

Canada.

Both falls were flowing rapidly

I had hoped upon retirement that I may have been able

to sell a few photos to pay for equipment. 

Pretty much what I used to do back in the 1980s

when taking wedding photos.

There are too many people who think photography is luck…

and to some extent it is. 

Right place, right time, right settings.

 

 

Earlier this year I watched as a visitor to my display raved over this photo. 

He couldn’t, or said he couldn’t believe it was a photo. 

Travel is on my  bucket list.

 This post has been interrupted by talking

to our South African Guide about our 2020 visit.

I could cheerfully hang this shot on my wall.

Trouble is blue doesn’t go well with our colour scheme.

It would be great to be able to fund camera equipment from photo sales.

So that’s my bucket list…or a portion of it.

We did not get to fly in this plane…

but it was at our accommodation the night before…


our Muddy River Safari in Canada.

After a hearty breakfast it was all aboard.

We won’t forget this trip in a hurry as it was here while having

our life jackets fitted that MGW discovered a familiar face doing the fitting. 

A former pupil at the school where she works.

A day or two later we were off on an evening hayride at Banff.

Followed by a more comfortable mode of transport for two days. 

Who has never ever wanted to drive a train??  🙂
