window

an opening in the wall or roof of a building or vehicle,
fitted with glass in a frame to admit light or air
and allow people to see out.

~~~~~

A window doorway.

Whatever you call it Maggie approved.

 

The view from

Gods Window

over the

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve

South Africa

This window just had to be photographed.

It is the view out Buckland’s BnB, about a five-minute drive

from the Hobbit Movie Set near Matamata,

New Zealand

When booking our Rocky Mountaineer options…

…we decided to pay the extra for the Gold Leaf experience…

…as carriages with windows in the roof were

all that we had ever seen advertised.

 

The less expensive, Silver Leaf Carriages have a restricted view…

…with windows only in the sides of the carriage

and meals are eaten in your seat.

Gold Leaf guests have a downstairs dining room.

The above image shows one Gold Leaf Carriage

on the extreme right.

The lower row of windows is in the dining area.

The front 5 or 6 cars are Silver Leaf Carriages.

The colour is pink.

Your tall white tree appears similar to a poplar tree

which is deciduous and the reason for including

this tree (name unknown) in its winter coat.

 

Not certain that your flowers are rhododendrons, Cee,

however, I think they are.

These rhododendrons were captured in the

Hamilton Gardens

New Zealand.

the arts and other manifestations of human

This young dance troupe gave us…

Black and White Challenge.

While cruising the Swan River (Perth-Fremantle)

we were shown large, expensive properties

built on the river’s banks.

My next photos are known as God’s Window.

Located a short drive from

Mount Sheba Resort…

…in South Africa’s, Blyde River Canyon,

the views are spectacular

totally befitting a view through

God’s Windows.

If ever you are going to visit New Zealand’s

Hobbit Movie Set at Matamata,

be sure to consider

Bucklands Air BnB.

Only a five-minute drive and you are

in a world of Hobbits.

The image above is taken through

the window of Bucklands BnB.

One-Word-Sunday-Bridge

~~~~~~~

~~~~~

bridge

a structure carrying a road, path, railway, etc.
across a river, road, or other obstacle
~~~~~

To me, this is the most famous, or infamous bridge in the world. 

I think it was a Primary School teacher who

introduced me to Florence’s

Bridge of Sighs

From that day forth it was always

on my mind to see/visit in person

Was it because I crossed it in a previous life? 

Some I know would heartily agree.

 

Dubai’s elevated railway appears to be

one long bridge stretching through the city.

 

 

One of my favourite New Zealand landscapes.

 

 

Finally, the bridge everyone recognises.

Sydney Harbour Bridge.

A Rope Fence…

…designed to keep tourists off the grass.

Skagway

Alaska

 

An educated guess tells me this fence

is in the vicinity of 40-50 years old.

 

A temporary fence to contain two young pups

after their trip to the vet. 

Maggie was quite disgusted at being

contained as well.

An automatically opening/closing gateway

Strainer posts support the fence tension

and often a gate as well.

Gateways like this one lead

Twenty-four year-old Woolly

it was a wondrous experience.

Commencing with the

Million Dollar View

at Banff in Canada.

A bit closer to some is

New Zealand’s,

Mount Ruapehu

on the North Island.

One of my favourite Australian views.

Since 2005 we have lived much closer to…

 

…Geelong’s Corio Bay.

 

In no particular order…

…these are but a few of my sunrise images.
