fantastic

 
We decided that we would not…

 

…not ride London’s famous Eye…

 

…and remained steadfast with our decision

until we were shown some after dark

images taken from the Eye.

 

 

…I think this is…

 

…a fantastic display of…

…Christmas lights.

***

In July 2021 we visited,

with all family members,

a Winter Wonderland

light display.

 

The display was aimed…

 

…to entertain young children.

However, it did a good job of keeping

children of all ages entertained

on a cold winter night.

During recent years,  Griffin Gully

has proven to be a wonderful spot

for Blue Hour…

 

…and sunrise photos…

…all year round.

From high atop the London Eye…

Big Ben quickly became…

…Little Ben.

Looking up to the top of the Burj Khalifa.

Can you see how the concrete in

the middle foreground of this image,

(bottom) looks a bit like a kidney bowl?

My first image…looking up…was taken

while walking along that area.

A giant bicycle wheel?

The London Eye could be easily mistaken for that.

 

Ben does not appear that big from atop the Eye.

Two years, two months and 5 days to complete the Eiffel Tower.

Paris from level two of the Eiffel Tower.

Auckland’s Sky Tower…

…where we gathered for dinner to celebrate our

daughter-in-law’s birthday, a few days before…

…No 1 son wed an Auckland girl…D-in-Law#2.

All that aside, whether day or night

the Sky Tower

provides excellent views of the

Auckland Harbour Bridge.

Night shots from a variety of places.

Big Ben and Parliament House

from the London Eye

Arras Bell Tower and Place des Heros

Arras,

France

Our night cruise on the River Seine

gave us a multitude of river-side parties…

annd a different perspective

of the Eiffel Tower.

The drive back to our hotel took us past

the Arc de Triomphe…

…and also city lights.

After arriving in Dubai at 0400,

we had a quiet day…

…prior to  boarding a Dhow for a…

…Dubai Creek Dinner Cruise.

Just a few colourful images…

…from our Diner Cruise on…

…Dubai Creek.

Night two saw us on a desert safari and dinner,

with entertainment provided by a fire dancer…

…and a belly dancer.

A great time was had and if you don’t mind

sand from horizon to horizon you

will love the experience.

Me?

I’m not a fan of sand.

Landmarks from any where

The Eiffel Tower…324 metres high.

The Tower in which Big Ben (the Bell)

resides is 96 metres high.

According too Google the

Geelong Football Club ground

is 5.1 kilometres as the crow flies.

Without the light towers, which are 73 metres high,

the ground would be difficult to spot

even from this vantage point.

***

Although I don’t have a photo,

this morrning Melbourne was laying claim to

having the tallest Southern hemisphere building.

At 388 metres high, the 108 storey

hotel and apartment building

is located in Melbourne’s

Southbank area.
