Picture This #379 ~ Distance

Why am I always rushed on Saturday? Maybe just lazy. My thanks to Pat for a great theme; I had many pictures I could use. Marvellous banner shot by Baz.

Many thanks to Pat for hosting this week. A very good theme, we should see lots of great photos!! Of course, many of my 'distance' shots were taken in the American south-west, but I did find an old favourite taken in Wales, too.

1) Devil's Bridge Falls in the distance, Wales. 
Sunlit Falls

2) On the road in Utah, with Zion National Park in the distance.

3) Las Vegas strip and the Stratosphere Tower in the distance.

4) You can see far into the distance from almost any point in Bryce Canyon, Utah.

Pat, the Angloswiss correspondent reporting from Switzerland. Saturday morning is too hectic for me to post, so you are getting it on Friday evening. It is a wonder I am here. Blogger has joined the clan of "let's do something new" but after a few minutes I found where I should go. Why do they repair that stuff that is no way broken?

Anyhow, themes are becoming rare, so I snag them sometimes from my WordPress challenges and this one is Distance. Do your own thing with it.

This is a sunrise from my garden last week. I can now do sunrises because we had daylinght saving time and now I am up in the morning to watch it all happen. Otherwise I am a sunset sort of person.

It wasn't a bird, or superman, so it must be a plane. I heard it and took a shot, just a speck in the distance.

I had to leave Mr. Swiss at the parking in the supermarket to put the stuff we bought into the boot of the car. I had more important things to do, like taking a photo of the alps from the parking house. It is not often that  you can see them so clearly. There was a special wind blowing "föhn" and so there was a clear sighting.

Hi all!! Congrats to Pat on a beautiful header and thanks to Anders on a creative theme. I have chosen to take the landscape for my inspiration and looking, some of the images could be interchangeable. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Picture This #378 ~ The Four Elements

Thanks for hosting Anders and a special thanks for featuring my frozen leaves as the banner photo.

Air - We all need air, especially this swarm of tiny flies that accompanied me on a walk along the River Bank. I sat down on a bench and took a few photos - this was an experiment.

Fire - I do not have a lot of photos of fire, and most have been shown here, so here is one of my firebugs that seem to occupy my garden in Summer.

Water - A shot of the local river Aar, just along the path where I live, with some of its numerous swans.

Earth - we had our lawn replenished with ready rolled turf some time ago. Here is the guy with a wheelbarrow loaded with earth and already growing lawn.

I found this to be a wonderful theme, very challenging with many possibilities. Pat's black and white leaves with ice crystals are beautiful as a banner picture. Here are my shots.
