Weathered giants

One of our favourite places to visit in the Spring is Thunder Rocks within Allegany State Park, New York. The enormous weathered rocks always provide ‘scope for the imagination’.

Niagara Falls holiday lights festival this year (repost)

November 18, and will run until January 31 of 2018

Canada’s largest lights festival is celebrating its 35th anniversary in Niagara Falls this year – and organizers say it’ll be their “brightest season yet.”

More than a million people from around the world come each year to see more than two million lights displayed throughout Niagara Falls during the city’s annual Winter Festival of Lights.

Growth over time. (WP Photo Challenge)

The ice grows over time as layers of mist freezes turning Niagara Falls Ontario into a winter wonderland.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

My favourite from 2017…

Wow. That’s a tall order to fill.

From the photo that generated the most reactions on your blog to the one that has the deepest emotional pull on you, define “favorite” in whatever way works best for you. Your chosen image doesn’t have to be one you’ve already shared in a previous Photo Challenge. Anything goes, as long as it’s a photo from 2017. If you want to share several images, that’s fine too — a “best of 2017” gallery could be fun if you can’t settle on one photo.

The photo that received the most attention was a little visitor to my garden.

I do love this visiting bee, but it’s not my favourite moment/photo from 2017.

Perhaps this photo… I definitely am tickled pink with it. (giggle) And it was a wonderful day just hanging out taking photos with my daughter.

But I think my favourite photo of 2017 would be one of my winter ones. I took these photos while out walking. I’m proud that this past year I continued with doing things such as walking in the cold, to work towards a healthier me.

Thank you for visiting. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and that 2018 is full of kindness & gratefulness.
