Weekly Photo Challenge – Narrow

One of the flights of stairs you take on the way up to the Golden Gallery of St Paul’s Cathedral.  Not for the faint hearted – go early if you want to reach the top but are slightly claustrophobic; I wouldn’t like to climb these when there is a crowd!  I arrived just after opening and was one of only a handful of people at the top.

Cherry on top

The good thing?  A 10 mile walk through the Lake District.  A short ferry ride from Bo’ness to Ambleside then uphill most of the way before taking in the cherry on top – the views.

Another cherry on top from it – it was downhill all the way back to Windermere from here 🙂

Sanctuary

The Daily Post

This is one of the views I get on my favourite walking route near my home.  It’s very much my sanctuary.  I tend to go early in the morning, when I know there won’t be too many people about, so it’s quiet, peaceful, calm, relaxing.  I don’t wear earphones to listen to music when I’m walking, I like to hear the silence.  I love turning the corner onto this view, I know it’s coming and I start to smile.

Opposites

Opposits

 

This weeks weekly photo challenge is ‘opposites’.

This picture has the green of the tree, with the barren, but completely breath-taking and mind-blowing, landscape of the Grand Canyon in the background.  It’s also a view over to the North Rim from the South Rim.

This was taken in the Grand Canyon National Park probably around 7.30am.  It had been a much earlier start for sunrise!

For the Weekly Photo Challenge theme – partners – I present to you The Kelpies, the largest equine sculptures in the world situated at The Helix, Falkirk.

If you are ever in that part of the world, pay them a visit, they are mighty impressive!

From the top photograph it can be pretty hard to imagine their size as you don’t know where I was positioned to take the photo, this second shot should help show it though!

Curve

The curve of the lake next to the golf course in the Westin Mission Hills Resort, Rancho Mirage not far from Palm Springs.

This was taken early morning and it was hot hot hot but so calm, quiet and peaceful with the mountains in the background!  It curves enough so you can catch a reflection of the sprinklers and some trees on the water.  The photo isn’t edited and there is a slight haze in the sky.
