Word-of-Day-Challenge-Odyssey

~~~~~

odyssey

a long wandering and eventful journey

I am inclined to suggest that any journey

originating in Australia and visiting

the northern hemisphere

could be described as an ‘Odyssey’.

Last year’s travel to Canada took us about

16 hours flying time to reach Vancouver Island

to the start of our Canadian/Alaskan adventure.Falling snow on the Columbia Ice-field was

an event we had not counted on.

Our sled ride on the Mendenhall Glacier was wonderful.

Followed by the Red Carpet treatment

when boarding our

Rocky Mountaineer

Gold Leaf Carriage.

 

 

 

Our Final day, not included in the tour,

was a visit to Wiseman,

a very small township

inside the Arctic Circle.

Somewhere in the French Countryside.

This may say something about my taste in art,

but it is  one of my favourite images.

A one off, never, to be captured again image

of a spider web in a canola crop a few years ago.

MGW doe not share my enthusiasm.

It can even be turned into bright, stronger colours

if that is your taste.

This was my first piece of photography art.

The now defunct Weekly Photo Challenge

wanted a CD cover design.

It interested it is simply a shot of water in Corio Bay.

And I love the mood in these two images…

…of Melbourne, last week.

From all over this week.

Not sure if this is a ‘tender moment’ or

a power play in the

Chobe National Park,

Botswana.

I choose to believe it is the former.

The Butterfly Gardens…2Victoria…

Vancouver Island…

British Columbia…

Canada.

I think the Butterfly Gardens are

an and ideal addition to your

Butchart Gardens visit.

 

Situated about 5-10 minutes by bus from Butchart Gardens

the Butterfly Gardens provide a different experience.

Also a half hour or so is all that is required

to wander the comparatively small Butterfly Gardens.
