Maligne Valley Gorge,

Jasper National Park,









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,



Maligne Gorge Falls

also found in

Jasper National Park,




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.

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!’




Patrick and I both visited

Jasper National Park (Alberta)

this week for our posts.

Maligne Valley Gorge Falls.

Although the sign read

Maligne Canyon.



Athabasca Falls

Both attractions are in

Jasper National Park


Both falls were flowing rapidly





Scenes like these…

tree branches covered with snow…

capped off with falling snow were 

the perfect ingredients for…

for our visit to Canada’s

Columbia Icefield and Athabasca Glacier.

Just perfect…


Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Ingredients


Cameras were madly clicking as all those…

present took advantage of falling snow.

Many seeing it for the first time ever.


Must apologise for misreading ‘Lessen’ as ‘Lesson’ last week.

Just noticed it.

Fandango’s-One-Word-Challenge: Present



Our day commenced with light rain falling…

the sort of rain which soaks in slowly

and you don’t realise you are wet

until your arms are cold.

About halfway through our morning, driver Clint,

noticed snow/ice on on-coming vehicles

which was soon followed by sleet/snow on our windscreen.

A little further on it was like looking

at all those Christmas cards,

only this time it was for real.

Mother Nature had treated us to twenty-seven centimetres,

or was it inches, of snow over night

and it was still snowing

For all of us who had not seen falling snow

this was a real treat and a photo

in falling snow was a must.

An all too brief walk around on the Glacier,

then it was time to move on.

My feet were in a hurry, got well in front of me

leaving me with a bruised ego and a wet derriere.


However, my ego recovered quickly

to allow me one more quick photo.
