A new day, a new beginning! (WPC – Rise/Set)

A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

Rise/Set is this week’s Photo challenge from The Daily Post. Be sure to click on the icon below to see more fabulous interpretations of this week’s challenge.

Touring MY Islands (WPC: Tour Guide)

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!

Afternoon Autumn Glow (WPC – Glow)

Yesterday afternoon I had to take a double-take at the house across the harbour. At first glance there appeared to be flames licking at the side of the house. My zoom-lens quickly revealed this burning glow to simply be a tree’s autumn attire.

Glow is The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge word the week.

Looking above (Monochrome Monday)

Cotton wool clouds floating past the window created a beautiful backdrop for the silhouette of these trees. Some already with their new leaves, others still waiting.

All too soon there will be so many leaves adorning all these trees, the branches will no longer appear naked against the morning sky.

 

 

 

 

My Harbour, My Escape (OWPC: Escape)

When it comes to wanting a quick escape from the everyday I’m extremely blessed as all I need do is look out my back windows. Any and all of these windows overlook the beautiful harbour just outside.

As is the way with not just harbours but any body of water, there is always something to watch, immediately transporting you to another place. Escape is this week’s One Word Photo Challenge.

A Sign of the Setting Sun (Monochrome Monday)

Walking up Pike Street for an early dinner before our short flight from Seattle to Vancouver, the setting sun behind the market’s sign caught my eye.

Although shooting into the sun is never advised, in this instance I simply couldn’t resist and am so glad I did.
