Sleeping Cheetah

Here is a close-up of a sleeping cheetah. Isn’t he marvellous? He looks so serene and peaceful. Doesn’t he remind you of a domestic cat the way he sleeps?

Ridge Lines

Ridge Lines

This is an incredible view of the ridge lines found in the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. I love the flow of the rock. I like the difference in the red and green hues. There is a path down below.

Red Hill Up Close

Red Hill Up Close

This is the wonderful Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. I love the angle and closeness of this right-hand hill. There is so much texture and structure to the hill. As well, there are great crevices in the background. It is really quite scenic.

Circle Gorge

This is from a helicopter view of the Grand Canyon, Arizona. I like the circle gorge as I think it is amazing the winds have created such an incredible structure.

We were so high, that we were almost at the cloud level.

Close-Up

This is a photo I took of a close-up of a leopard’s head. He is magnificent – isn’t he? The leopard is one of the five extant species in the genus Panthera, a member of the Felidae. The leopard occurs in a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia.

Seagull Sticks

Pretty much anywhere you go when you are near water; you will find Seagulls or Gulls. I read that these birds breed on every continent and even on the fringes of Antarctica and the North Arctic which I think is amazing.  I think this speaks to their hardiness and ability to adapt to various climates around the world.  I do realize they are mainly scavengers and so this explains their ability to sustain themselves.  Apparently, they can live a long time and often mate for life.  Their offspring are precocial which means they are able to be mobile upon hatching out of their eggs, among a few other things.  This photo that I took was on a lake which had these large pieces of wood sticking out of the water which I believe is being used to moor boats to near the shoreline.  It looks as if the Seagulls have taken over.  Enjoy!

Blue Mountains

Blue skies, blue mountains, blue borders it all.  These are the incredible Rocky Mountains found in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.  They are stoic and ever-lasting in their beauty as they grace the Canadian landscape.  Wisps of gentle white clouds linger along the mountain peaks.  At the base you can see the coniferous trees growing and yet on top you see the white snow and ice.  I hope you enjoy this image as much as I enjoyed being in their presence and taking their photographs.

Closer to You

These are beautiful ladybugs with rich red, orange and yellow colourings with those adorable black spots.  I look at this photo that I took and it almost looks like a snake’s head reaching upwards being covered by the ladybugs.  It is, in fact, only a unique looking branch that is covered with ladybugs not only on the top, but the sides and even underneath.  How do they do that?  It looks as if by reaching the end of the branch, they will reach something or someone special.  I hope they do.

Sunset at Lake Winnipeg

Did you know that Lake Winnipeg is the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world?  Did you also know that the water drainage basin includes waters from Western Canada, including the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba?  On the East, the waters from North-Western Ontario end up in this lake.  On the south end, waters from the states of Minnesota and North Dakota flow northwards to Lake Winnipeg.  All the waters end up going north to Nelson River and ends up in the watershed of Hudson Bay which is also one of the largest in the world.  In order for future generations to enjoy this water and these types of sunsets, we all need to take action now to ensure that pollutants are not dumped intentionally or haphazardly in error into the water system.  As the Aboriginals or First Nations People say, we should make decisions based on the concept of “Seven Generations” which mean we need to consider the next 7 generations and how it will affect them.

Lush Green Forest

Isn’t there something so magical about being in a beautiful forest?  There is such quiet and solitude, such incredible beauty.  I took this photo because of the lush green moss on the trees that enhance the brown bark and fallen leaves.  I look at the photograph and dream of hiking through such beauty.
