Some Favourite Landscapes

Getting out right now …

near Red Earth, Northern Alberta

… isn’t much of an option, so here are some of my favourite views.

Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

The warmth and soft air of Dominican Republic,

Tofino, British Columbia

and the tang of Tofino’s salty Pacific song are remembrances of lovely past travels.

Great Slave Lake, Northwest Territories

And right next to where I work, a tranquil autumn view of Great Slave Lake.

Penticton, British Columbia

Home. ❤️

Happy week. May good memories sustain you and keep you.

    1. Thank you. 🙂

      My reminiscing is wistful this year as I would really like to be able get round and about. Have to wait. Sigh. At least the beginning of the end of covid has started. 🙂

      1. Yes!! It was very exciting to hear that Canada administered its first vaccine shots yesterday. The end is hopefully in sight!! Either way, this definitely gives us hope for 2021.

    1. Thank you. 🙂 That photo was taken through a very dirty truck window (covered in all kinds of road salt and other crud) while the vehicle was moving. We were just coming into some sun after driving through ice fog. I was surprised that it turned out so well.

    1. Thank you very much, Stuart. I have a sense that, even though I loved these scenes, I was a bit taking them for granted. Having my movement curtailed so much this year has shown me how fortunate I’ve been.

      1. It’s odd, isn’t it, Lynette? When we’re surrounded by natural beauty, it’s so easy to take it for granted. Posting daily pictures of what to me are everyday scenes has shown me that for many people these places are special. I look at my surroundings through different eyes now, trying to see scenes as though they are new to me. The responses of others are so valuable for keeping us grounded but also for showing us that some things we see as ordinary are, in fact, really quite special.

          1. Oh, I think we all fall into the trap of everyday living getting in the way of appreciation. We all need some event, stimulus, even perhaps a negative influence, to shake us out of our natural complacency. Life lived with full awareness would be just too much for most of us, especially if we’re sensitive.

  1. I’m not sure if the sun is rising or setting in your photos, but it’s gorgeous just the same. Love the colors in them all, especially the last one. 🙂

    1. The first one is a rising sun and the last one is a setting sun. The DR photo shows a rising moon. 😉
      Thank you very much, Christi. The last one is best because that’s where home is. 🙂

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
