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!’

spill

cause or allow (liquid) to flow over the edge
of its container, especially unintentionally.

Rhine Falls did not appear to be a large water fall.

However, the water spilling over the spillway

dwarfs the onlookers of the platform.

aquarium

a transparent tank of water in which live fish and other water creatures and plants are kept.
a building containing tanks of live fish of different species.

My images are not exactly aquarium images…

 …but they all show fish…

 

…in water.

Looking through a glass bottom boat on

the Great Barrier Reef,

near Cairns in Queensland

is probably the closest I have to an aquarium shot.

Rhine Falls

 
We left the Cuckoo Clock factory and traveled on….

rhine-falls_0148

 through Switzerland’s and Europe’s villages

which differ so much to their Australian counterparts.

rhine-falls_0165

All these villages and bridges surrounded by mountains

the likes of which I have never seen where

I have lived in Australia.

Eventually arriving at Europe’s

largest plains waterfall (Google)

The Rhine Falls, in mid afternoon.

Having been on The Maid of the Mist at

Canada’s Horseshoe Falls at Niagara

I would have loved to have joined these tourists,

however, time was of the essence..

rhine-falls_0208

This would have been a good spot for a photo also.

rhine-falls_0196

A parting galnce at the Rhine Falls and…..

rhine-falls_0186

we bade Rhine Falls

Farewell and

continued our journey

to Lucerne.

I cannot remember what they are.
