Word-of-Day-Challenge-Admire

~~~~~

During our visit to the Vatican…

…we found many…

…works of art to admire.

And although

The Creation of Adam

measures 280 cm × 570 cm (9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 in)

it looked much smaller.

However, perhaps the fact that it

was 14 metres above us contributed to the fact

that it didn’t appear a large as expected.

My contribution for

this week’s challenge

Letter-V

(Needs to start with V…contain at least 6 letters)

Monaco during our 2016 holiday/Vacation

Part of the Moorabool Valley near Geelong.

 

 

Most buildings in Amsterdam are Vertical, however,

some do lean like the Tower of Pisa.

 

Even from an altitude of 40,000 feet it is difficult

to appreciate the Vastness of the Antarctic ice pack.

I always The Creation of Adam would dominate

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.

  However it was swallowed up by surrounding panels.

According to Wikipedia it is substantial

9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 inches, it is so far above

one’s head it seems you could

hold it in your hands.
