I never thought the difference would be so obvious…

until I visited the Melbourne Zoo after…

 

seeing the same animals roaming free in

Botswana and Kruger National Park.

My first photo is of Mount Elephant….

a volcanic cone,

one of the many in Western Victoria.

I have never been to the top of Mt Elephant

but driven past it hundreds of times in my life.

From the top of Mt Rigi

overlooking Lake Lucerne.

from Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver, Canada.

SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Lazy-Days

 

On this chilly Victorian winter Sunday

my thoughts took me…

to a sunny September day, in 2016, on… 

and around Lake Lucerne.

 

A few days later we were strolling along

Nice’s Promenade des Anglais…

 

where many were enjoying

a lazy day in the sun.

Last two images are two sections of one larger photo.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Heat

~~~~~

Our largest source of Heat,

the Sun,

drives many people to our beaches

during the summer months.

These sun lovers on and along Lake Lucerne had

shed their day wear for beach attire on a day

which most of us thought was pleasant but not hot.

However, I’m sure there a plenty who would

have a chuckle at me saying a day

was chilly, temperature under 20 degrees Celsius,

and cold under 10 degrees.

All a matter of perspective.

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!
