Cee’s Black & White Challenge:  Moving-Water

Tuesday-PC-Wk176-Fall

~~~~~~

Considering we are at the opposite end

of the seasonal roundabout,

most of my photos, this week,

are of waterfalls

Because Victoria Falls was mentioned in the challenge,

my first image is of Victoria Falls.

I believe the stream of water in the foreground

is known as Devil’s Kitchen (not certain) and this

is erosion taking place to prepare a new site

for Victoria Falls.

As is visible in this photo there at least

five other sites of the Victoria Falls.

 

Hopkins Falls.

At 90 metres wide it is one of Victoria’s widest falls.

Athabasca Falls

near Jasper, Alberta,

Canada.

 

Maligne Gorge Falls

also found in

Jasper National Park,

Canada.

 

 

Rhine Falls in Switzerland.

 

Huka Falls,

near Taupo,

New Zealand

 

 

 

So, while the northern hemisphere is taking Autumn/Fall images,

these were taken in our garden just before

sunset on Tuesday September 3, 2019.

Leucadendron…a member

of Protea family.

Not only are these Snow Drops,

but today Google says they are

Giant Snow Drops.

A memory from the farm.

 

Not sure if these a ex-farm flowers or

purchases made since moving.

However, I first saw the Winter Rose

after I said ‘I do!’

Tuesday-PC-Wk170-Sculpture

~~~~~~

While these two terms are related to each other, they do not mean exactly the same.
statue is a carved or cast figure of a person or animal.
Sculpture is a piece of art that is made by carving or molding clay, stone, metal, etc.
A sculpture that contains a human or animal figure can be termed as a statue.

 

I miss-defined the statue/sculpture definition,

so this is take two.

Vienna, Austria.

Avignon, France

 

St Paul de Vence,

France

Taupo,

New Zealand

Statue or sculpture.

Grouse Mountain,

Vancouver, BC.

Two continents and one island this week.

A scene from Day  2 of our

Rocky Mountaineer Train trip

to Vancouver, June 2018.

Whistler ski slopes, Canada, June 2018

 

 

Across the Pacific Ocean

and much closer to home is

New Zealannd’s…

Mount Ruapehu,

which is an active volcano

in Tongariro National Park.

New Zealand’s North Island’s major ski resorts

and only glaciers are too be found on Mt Ruapehu.

Across the Indian Ocean is the Mt Sheba Resort.

And a not too long drive from Mt Sheba

is an area known as God’s Window. 

Stunning views

 

From

Sausage Tree Safari Camp…

…we were able to admire the Drakensberg Mountains

and enjoy a drink  or meal while doing so.

A catch up post.

Falling water in Banff’s…

 

…Cascade Gardens.

The ‘fall’ may not be any higher than the

Cascade Garden falls, however,

Huka Falls a few minutes out of Taupo,

New Zealand wins, hands down,

for power and quantity.
