Five Colours

Green …

We had experienced several days of rain but the upside was this last meander along the River Rance between Dinan and Léhon in Brittany with the intoxicating scent of the lush, damp woodlands sweetening the air.

I discovered this inviting and elegant setting for two in a corner on our cruise ship – the perfect spot for an intimate conversation, a quiet drink, or an hour with a good book during a quiet day at sea.

A most obliging fellow, this Grey Crowned Crane and I went for a walk together in our Mexican resort at Playa del Carmen.  He strutted along beside me – what he lacked in artful conversation he made up for with his striking appearance.

Gliding through Glacier Alley in the Beagle Channel – it was cloudy, damp, chilling and raining.  Despite the sounds of the life of the ship and the crowds gathered at the ship’s rail to watch the spectacle, there was still a backdrop of profound silence – as if the space was unpolluted by the sound waves that ricochet around the rest of the world.  I felt Mother Nature’s overpowering presence – the low-lying clouds silently drifting over the tops of the mountains; waterfalls spilling out their glacier waters; the rain, the wind and the temperature making beautiful patterns on the Channel waters.  This is Holanda Glacier; one of five glaciers in the channel at the southern tip of South America.

  1. Wonderful images, such intense beauty there in the woods, I could just smell the dank peat and loam, so invigorating!! That last photo especially made me smile, with the wee feline in a sea of blue. Wonderful colours, excellent shots indeed!


      1. I know what you mean – as I said, at the end of the process the pix I chose were almost all not among my first selections. You’re lucky to have someone to engage with in making the decision – every time my maid came across me talking to myself, debating the merits of this one, the lack of focus there … she would raise her eyebrows and grinned at me 🙂
