Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above


The topic for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is ‘From Above‘.    I love taking photos from this perspective – here are a few of my favourites…

I borrowed my sister-in-law’s pocket camera for a hike up to the top of Whistlers Mountain in Jasper National Park,  and took this photo of these beautiful flowers along the way.

I took these next three photos in Canada’s arctic, near Auyuittuq National Park on Baffin Island.

This photo was taken from a much wider perspective – it’s Alexandra Falls on the Hay River in Canada’s Northwest Territories during river breakup…

Here are a couple more looking down on the Hay River during breakup…

Here’s one closer to home – one I took on a balloon ride in Edmonton, Alberta…

And finally, here’s one from an extremely wide perspective – it’s of some the mountains, lakes and glaciers of Alaska…

Hope you enjoyed my take on “From Above” – have a great week!
