Gnarled With Time

I have always had an affinity for trees with character. This tree has seen some rough times in the deserts of Arizona. It is definitely gnarled with time and yet it continues to survive like a fighter. They are the wisps of nature as it continues to grow in perfect balance.

Young And Old

I love the contrast between the old rose on the right-hand side who has lived her life and is dying now. The beauty on the right is just beginning her life. Roses are just gorgeous even if they come with prickly thorns. It is the way of life – negative and positive making up the whole – isn’t it?

Back and Forth

Back And Forth

These flowers are both looking forwards and backwards at the same time. I find it unusual that they are not all facing the same direction as they would towards the sunshine but they were indoors so I guess that is why they are growing towards different light sources.

I do not know what type of flowers they are but they are pretty. Perhaps, someone could enlighten me?

Canada Place

I was across the water at Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada when I captured this image of Canada Place. I love the sail elements and I also like the peach hue of the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “Canada Place is a building situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the home of the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel, and Vancouver’s World Trade Centre.”

Columbia Icefield

Columbian Icefield

Columbia Icefield

My husband and I have been to the Columbia Icefield many times through the years. The first time was back in 1984 and it has receded a lot since the original time. Back then, we were using film cameras. This is image, however, is more recent. I got off the bus tour that goes up and took an image looking far back towards the height and start of the glacier.

According to Wikipedia, “The Athabasca Glacier is one of the six principal ‘toes’ of the Columbia Icefield, located in the Canadian Rockies. The glacier currently loses depth at a rate of about 5 metres per year and has receded more than 1.5 km and lost over half of its volume in the past 125 years.”

Upward Growth

Upward Growth

I love the way the ivy is crawling and creeping up this tree. I love the way it has tendrils that move up at its own pace. It is growing upwards and onwards to heaven above and the sun and the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “On level ground they remain creeping, not exceeding 5–20 cm height, but on suitable surfaces for climbing, including trees, natural rock outcrops or man-made structures such as quarry rock faces or built masonry and wooden structures, they can climb to at least 30 m above the ground.”

Bloedel Conservatory

It was a end of fall day when we were visiting the Bloedel Conservatory. i liked the shape and textural architecture of the round dome building. I like ht paths leading up to it and also the water fountains.This building has been used in many TV shows and movies.

According to Vancouver, Parks and Recreation, “Bloedel Conservatory is a domed lush paradise located in Queen Elizabeth Park atop the City of Vancouver’s highest point. More than 120 free-flying exotic birds, 500 exotic plants and flowers thrive within its temperature-controlled environment.”
