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!’

In Switzerland we found many people…

..enjoying a break on Lake Lucerne,

in temperatures which would have had

most of us rugged up.

It was not until I cropped this photo

that I noticed the young male in the middle

and how much he appears to be enjoying his break

with four bikini clad young ladies.

 


I love to take a break and travel to somewhere

I have not been for a while and

photograph what I find. 

 

 

 

Gibson Steps was a place I had not visited

for many years until two years ago.

 


Photography has and will always be

a hobby of mine.

About two years ago I drove back to Warrnambool,

on Victoria’s South West Coast,

where there is a whale nursery at Logan’s Beach.

Our train ride up Switzerland’s…

Mt Rigi…

…did not take us to the apex.

There were two fairly steep walks left to attain

the full 1,798 metre height of the mountain.

While I did not hurry there were

spectacular views as we walked up.

 

 

Upon arriving at the summit the views…

 

of Lake Lucerne we equally…

…breathtaking.

 

 

 

After ten or fifteen minutes it was time

to return to the gift shop level.

The walk back seemed more difficult

than the walk up, thanks to a football injury

to my knee in the early 1970s.

Definitely worth the effort though.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge-Orange-Pink

~~~~~

I have alternated colours this week.Bags of Australian grown oranges

in Melbourne.

Pink blossom closer to home.

The manufacturer calls this colour ‘Jaffa’.

Most people refer to it as orange.

It is one of the last cars manufactured in Australia,

by General Motors Holden.

A pink Galah.

Often people who do something silly

are called galahs also.

 

 Not sure where I found this

or what it is supposed to be,

however, it is orange.

 

Who cares what colour they are.

Macaroons are always yummy.

Just not healthy.

A motor scooter in Melbourne.

 

 

I believe this photo was taken in Florence.

Just cannot remember if the bag

was for sale or

owned by a fellow traveller.

The other option was that it fell into the:

‘...Darling this matches my shoes…

and it’s only 1,000 Euro...’

category.
