Luscious Growth

Luscious Growth

This is the kind of luscious forest growth I like. The older trees have character, texture and colour while the new plant life is coming up around them to live, grow and prosper. 

I like the symmetry of this photograph I took. Although it is kind of off the center aspect ratio, there is balance as the trees and plants offset one another. 

This is an image from the West Coast in Vancouver, British Columbia where the forests have incredible dimensions. They are a lush green in sight and have a musky type of smell in the undergrowth of the forests. 

According to the Vancouver website, “Vancouver has at least 30 different kinds of street trees, of all shapes and sizes, ranging from giant sequoiadendron, elm, maple, chestnut, oak and liriodendron to robinia, ash, hawthorn, birch, linden, beech and hornbeam.”

Take-Off

Take-Off

This is an photographic image near Vancouver, British Columbia as we take off from its Airport at Richmond, BC or better known as YVR. You can see the coastal mountain ranges and the waters of the Pacific Ocean as Richmond is actually a series of islands nestled together in the mouth of the Fraser River. On the right hand side, you can see a wee, little freighter out in the water from that level. We were ascending into the sky onwards and upwards after a good visit on the West Coast.  

I had enjoyed our stay there and will miss my previous province of residence. I will miss British California, as we affectionately call it. 

According to Wikipedia, “Vancouver International Airport is an international airport in Richmond, British Columbia. It is located 12 km from Downtown Vancouver. It is the second busiest airport in Canada by aircraft movements and passengers, behind Toronto Pearson International Airport.”

Kasugai Gardens

Kasugai Gardens

My husband and I were in Kelowna visiting with his previous regiment, the British Columbia Dragoons. They were celebrating their 100th anniversary as an armoured reconnaissance regiment of the Canadian Forces. They are the sister regiment to the The Royal Dragoon Guards in Britain. 

While there, we toured around the Kasugai Gardens which was not part of the city when we lived there. I found it to be quite beautiful and a peaceful and serene place where you can sit down and enjoy the scenery. 

According to the City of Kelowna website, “The garden was completed in 1987 to demonstrate the friendship and union between Kelowna and its sister city in Kasugai, Japan. The park integrates traditional elements notable in Japanese gardens, such as stone lanterns, pine trees, waterfalls and a pond stocked with Koi. It is a beautiful integration of stone, pathways, plants and water.”

String of Lights

This is a bridge in Tempe, Arizona with a string of white lights on it. It crosses the waterway and connects both sides of the Salt River. 

According to Wikipedia, “Tempe Town Lake is an artificial perennial reservoir located just north of Tempe Butte at the confluence of the intermittent Salt River and the ephemeral Indian Bend Wash in Tempe, Arizona. The reservoir receives much of its water from the Colorado River via the Central Arizona Project.”

Amiens Bridge

Mikawoz Amiens Bridge

Amiens Bridge

In the quaint city of Amiens, there is a location near the Somme River which is home to a number of outdoor patios and restaurants in Northern France. We had a wonderful 3 to 5 course meal with accompanying beverages over a period of 2 to 3 hours. The French know how to “Dine.” I took this photograph of one of the bridges. I really like the way they turn a brick bridge into something beautiful with flowers on the sides. Can you see the swan in the water near the center of the photo?

Pompe à Eau

Mikawoz Pompe à Eau

Pompe à Eau

While travelling in France, we stayed with friends in the French countryside just outside of Paris. It was a beautiful cottage home. I enjoyed wandering the grounds exploring the gardens and photographing this water pomp or Pompe à Eau.

I have put a sepia colour to indicate that it is from an older time and generation.

Fiery Orange Ball

Fiery Orange Ball

This is the setting sun of an orange ball in the sky affecting the clouds around it. It was incredibly beautiful over the North Pacific Ocean near Waikiki, Oahu. Mind you, it was very quick. We were on a boat cruise and the sun disappeared very quickly so I had to be quick with my camera photos.

Wrinkles in Time

Mikawoz Wrinkles in Time

Wrinkles In Time

The water in the Bahama Islands has created these “Wrinkles in Time.” I took a number of photographs of these sand ridges. It is as if they are individual finger prints in the memory of time and sand. It was hard to find places were people had not stood and ruined the individual prints. I like the texture and flow. It is like musical rhythm.

Blue Sky Ocean

Blue Sky Ocean

I love to travel. I love looking out the window and seeing beautiful puffs of clouds like an ocean or of the Infinite. It feels as if you could just step out of the plane and softly walk or tip toe along the Breath of God. I feel this image of blues is just serene and so inviting.

Curvature

What can I say? I love the curvature of the earth. It is fascinating the way you can see it from so high up. Yes! The Earth is round. Here live the humans who have built a concrete jungle. Amidst the greenery, there is water but on this river, live so many people working and travelling up and down its path. There is a history and present story to be told in this photo.

It is a view of Paris and the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower.
