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..

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

A parting galnce at the Rhine Falls and…..

Farewell and

Rhineland-2

 
Last week we had just arrived at…

rhineland_cuckoo_0083

the Cuckoo Clock factory.

rhineland_cuckoo_0087

A short walk found us at the main building,

which was designed as a huge cuckoo clock…

rhineland_cuckoo_0096

 with figurines waltzing around the balcony

to mark the hour of the day.

Although photos do not do it justice, I thought

the best part was being able to see

what happens behinds the scenes.

rhineland_cuckoo_0101

We were given a short talk about cuckoo clocks,

which are all made from Black Forest wood, I believe…

rhineland_cuckoo_0103

and shown various types of clocks…

rhineland_cuckoo_0104

The clocks were beautiful, however…

rhineland_cuckoo_0105

being hand-made many had price tag reflecting

the number of hours it took

to create this work of art.

rhineland_cuckoo_0089As we left the factory we reminded how far were from home.

The pointer above Shanghai points to Sydney some 16,606 kilometres.

Add another 878km via the inland route (8 hours drive),

or 1,380km along the coast road (18 hours drive) to that journey

for those of us who live in or near Melbourne.

Thank goodness for air travel.

So!  After all that looking, listening and photographing,

in congenial surroundings, it was time…

rhineland_cuckoo_0124

for a slice of Black Forest cake

before continuing on our journey.
