Sunsets are amazing

Another shot from our recent Caribbean vacation, this time a sunset shot. Sunsets, and sunrises, are amazing, no matter where in the world you are! They are always worth sticking around for.

Sunrise return

It’s been a while since I last posted, which is mainly due to considering if I should continue with my blog.

Is blogging really still relevant in this day of social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, where posts swish by, constantly vying for likes and comments? I have asked myself this question for some time and I am sure I am not the only blogger to do so. My blog is only small and has just over 320 followers, most of which don’t engage at all, and I suspect the majority of them no longer use this platform. That being said, people do still read blogs, otherwise platforms like this would no longer exist. I don’t like to bow to defeat, so have decided to continue this blog. I might change things around a bit in the next little while to freshen things up, but I do like sharing my photos and creations even if only a small number of people read the posts and engage with me (I am not going to let that defeat me!).

So, here is a beautiful sunrise my husband and I got up early to see on our recent vacation to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.

Frosty Morning

Working from home has its benefits, especially when you can capture a beautiful sunrise on a frosty cold morning. I wish I could work from home every day, but alas telecommuting is still not a thing where I work.

More Snow

We were lucky to get quite a lot of snow at Christmas (when this photo was taken) and we had some beautiful blue skies to go along with it once snowfall stopped.

Cee’s B&W Challenge: Two different things

Two different things are required in one photo this week for the B&W Challenge; this one does take some thinking about, but offers the opportunity for some creative interpretation.

Tonquin Beach in Tofino

This is such a nice little beach with a fantastic approach down a track through the forest and then down wooden stairs and over a bridge before you arrive to this.

This was taken in the early evening as the last sunlight hit the beach. The view was taken at the bottom of somebody’s private stairs, which lead up to their home on top of the cliff. Just imagine what it must be like to live there, seeing this view every day and within a few steps you are down on the beach. Oh I wish!

Into the wilderness

We came across this beautiful spot on our way back from Fernie in BC the other month. There was not another soul in sight, so it was beautifully quiet and we were able to really take this spot in.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

It’s about the journey and not the destination

A saying that couldn’t be more true in the case of getting to this lake; Upper Kananaskis Lake.

Don’t get me wrong, the lake is beautiful, and not to be sniffed at as the destination, but the journey is so much nicer. That is, if you go and use the correct route. Highway 40 from our end is the only way we go into Kananaskis Country and on to the lake, however, this route is closed every year from December to mid June. Yes, you can still get to the lake during the closure, but that means a large part of your journey will be spent on a boring straight highway, which is really not attractive at all.

So, with the route open as of last week, we took a trip out to the lake to get our fix of the mountains.
