This week the Daily Post for their Weekly Photo Challenge is asking us to be a Tour Guide by sharing images of where we live. Driving the children to school, I found what could be many captures to highlight our small town. Then the sun came out…
Although we’ve had no real snow of late to talk about only rain, just outside our town has had a surprisingly lot of snow in just the last week alone. In fact our highway, the only way in and out of town, was closed for 24 hours due to a high avalanche risk.
When the sun broke through the clouds yesterday morning, this short respite in weather allowed the highway to reopen thus allowing our life to continue as scripted. It was like watching the heavy stage curtain rise to reveal the performance behind!
Even now, this image of abstract artwork on one of our visits to Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland still intrigues me. It’s almost as if one piece of this iron is keeping the mountain at bay whilst another piece is stretching to protect the church from it.
This small township was an hour’s drive from our home in Reyðarfjörður. It was one of those drives that always felt as if it was taking longer then it was due to the fact you had to drive down the steepest, twisty road into it.
This image felt ideal for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge this week of… Scale. Like everything in life, it’s where you stand that creates “your” perspective of what’s around you.
The scenery on the drive to and from my son’s orthodontist appointment every other month is always changing, and is always spectacular. Fortunately the camera made it on this visit.
Even after almost eighteen months of these trips, the camera doesn’t always make it into the car in my haste to ensure Miss Fourteen is at school in time before we leave.
There’s just something uniquely special about older steel-framed bridges. Especially when you chance upon it from a curve in the road.
When it comes with a mountain backdrop such as this with its assortment of trees and flowing stream also, well, it only makes it all that more special!
