Our visit to the

Columbia Ice Fields…was made so special…

by the sight and memory of freshly falling,

silent shrouds of snow.

SUNDAY-STILLS-PC-Bucket-List-Images

I had hoped upon retirement that I may have been able

to sell a few photos to pay for equipment. 

Pretty much what I used to do back in the 1980s

when taking wedding photos.

There are too many people who think photography is luck…

and to some extent it is. 

Right place, right time, right settings.

 

 

Earlier this year I watched as a visitor to my display raved over this photo. 

He couldn’t, or said he couldn’t believe it was a photo. 

Travel is on my  bucket list.

 This post has been interrupted by talking

to our South African Guide about our 2020 visit.

I could cheerfully hang this shot on my wall.

Trouble is blue doesn’t go well with our colour scheme.

It would be great to be able to fund camera equipment from photo sales.

So that’s my bucket list…or a portion of it.

North American blues this week.

Our verandah view at the

Mike Wiegele Resort,

Blue River, Canada

We had a wonderful visit to

3,700 feet high Grouse Mountain…

 

where blue skies and icy snow packs gave us

something unusual to photograph.

We had been told of Beaver Tails so just had  to sample.

  Yum!

Although a cardiologist may not agree.

A few weeks later were soaring into the wild blue yonder

as we departed Fairbanks, in our bright blue plane,

crossing the Arctic Circle on our way

to Wiseman, Alaska.
