WitsEnd-Weekly-PC-Falling-Water

 

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.

Two continents…two unexpected beauties.

The Million Dollar view

at Banff,

Canada

One place I did not to expect to be so beautiful

was on the Somme Battlefields in France.

After having lived on a farm for most of my life…

 

I found the fields around the

Villers Bretonneux Australian Memorial…

unexpectedly beautiful.

Known as the ‘million dollar view’

when Banff Springs Hotel

was constructed the kitchen had this view.

During renovations the kitchen was moved

and now guests and visitors are able

to take in this stunning view.

At least that is the story we were told 🙂

I  think all but one image reflects my sub theme this week.First one of the several small water falls/features

in the Cascade Gardens

in Banff, Canada.

Athabasca Falls Alberta, Canada.

Another shot from Athabasca Falls,

Alberta, Canada.

Maligne Canyon Falls, Alberta, Canada.

While not strictly in keeping with the rest of my post

this leaf caught my eye as

I was leaving Maligne Canyon Falls.

However, it could be argued that these water droplets

would not be hanging around for much longer.

SUNDAY STILLS PHOTOS: Water

Wits-End-Weekly-Prompt-Moving-Water

 

Although most of these photos are from

Vancouver Island we found plenty

of moving water in Canada.

Fountain outside Legislative Assembly Building,

Victoria, Vancouver Island.

 

This snail fountain can be found just inside

the Butchart Gardens gate.

Jumping to Alberta and Banff’s

Cascade Gardens provides this waterfall.

Known for its murals, Chemainus can be

discovered on Vancouver Island.

Finally, possibly my favourite Canadian fountain is the

Ross Fountain in the Butchart Gardens,

Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

Finally, maybe a slightly different take on moving water.

We had to cross what seemed to be a fairly narrow path

each time we entered/exited our hotel in Victoria, BC.

The Parkside has some huge fish in this pond.
