Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-V

~~~

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-V

(Needs to start with V…contain at least 6 letters)

Monaco during our 2016 holiday/Vacation

Part of the Moorabool Valley near Geelong.

 

 

Most buildings in Amsterdam are Vertical, however,

some do lean like the Tower of Pisa.

 

Even from an altitude of 40,000 feet it is difficult

to appreciate the Vastness of the Antarctic ice pack.

I always The Creation of Adam would dominate

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.

  However it was swallowed up by surrounding panels.

According to Wikipedia it is substantial

9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 inches, it is so far above

one’s head it seems you could

hold it in your hands.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Letter-Q

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-Q

(Needs to have letter Q)

Random Qs from

anywhere, again, this week.

~~~~~

Easy one to begin…

Jonquils in bloom.

While this squabble is all in play,

they have turned into the real deal

on several occasions…usually over food or

Candi biting Taji’s luscious ears

just a bit too hard.

 

One definition of Quibble is to raise an objection…

which I did on more than one occasion last year

when Candi was destroying this bed.

Now we have a brand new mattress inside

waiting until the day we think Candi is past

all the stupidity of youth.

Surfing at Torquay Beach

Hopefully this is a member of the squid family.

I’m not too good with colours, but both this

and the next image…

 

are tagged as turquoise.

I live in hope!

Mosquito repellant

A London Squirrel.

A view from Queenscliffe, down on the coast.

Was playing around with Photoshop

hence the over blue water.

And only fitting to finish with

Australia’s flag bearer…

a QANTAS jet

Weekly Photo Challenge-Ascend

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Ascend

~~~~~

To be able to admire this view…

we had to…

ascend the Spiral Staircase in the Vatican.

 

In Lucerne we ascended Mt Rigi…


via a tourist train.

I thought the train was taking us to the top. 

However, we had to ascend/walk this path before…

This was taken about half way up/down. 

The rail journey ended at that building on the left.

 

we were able to take in the beautiful views…


from the top of Mt Rigi. 

 at the top, I had a brief meeting with my knees.

They declined the offer to ascend

this viewing platform citing the return journey

was going to be more precarious

than walking up to the top.

As always they were correct!

either side of the fountain.

Another walk to the

an elevator ride to the top.

 

However, over in the Vatican walkers

ascend this spiral (step less)

staircase at a more sedate pace.

Steps from all over this week.

Some Viennese steps.

 At St Paul de Vence near Nice.

 Even the Vatican had a healthy set of steps.

 

This area of coastline is near

The Twelve Apostles

and is known as

Gibson Steps.

My destination was the Apostles so this was

only to be a brief stop.

On the day I did not see the steps

but the size of the couple on the sand

left me in no doubt that I

would not be looking for them, that day.
