In Anno Itinerantur - V is for Vistas

#AtoZChallenge 2023 letter V
In the past year since  travel opened up for Australians Robert and I have taken several journeys at home and overseas. While I posted many photos of these adventures on Facebook I want to leave a more permanent record of some of our adventures. This challenge provides me with opportunities to share my photos and stories while recording some personal history. 
I plan to share photos and stories from our travels between April 2022 and March 2023.  My theme this year is In Anno Itinerantur. 

Many of my photos are tagged as landscapes, coastlines, seascapes or skylines. I can lump most of these images into the category of Vistas, photos that may look down, up or along to show a comprehensive view of an area. I have enjoyed scrolling through my photos to find a selection of vistas we have enjoyed during our recent travels.

  1. Stunning is the word that comes to the mind while going through these pictures. The one of the cotton fields is amazing. Are those drums filled with cotton balls?

  2. I liked your choice of title I.e. Vista . Beautiful views and a wonderful record of your travels.

  3. Great photos of amazing vistas! Well done...

  4. Lots of marvellous scenes. A great variety. I loved the textures of olive trees and vines in Italy.

    1. Yes, it turned out ok being taken from our bus.

  5. Fabulous vistas…such diversity. Lucky duck seeing Mitchell Falls.

    1. It was a long hot day and, in retrospect, a bit of an anti-climax. There was so much hype around the visit.

  6. Stunning vistas Jill.

  7. You’ve a great eye for a wonderful view

  8. So many beautiful variations! I am especially drawn to your image of the cotton farm. The rural scene is a striking contrast to the waterfront and city scapes, and the immensity of those bales comes through quite clearly.


I'd love to hear what you have to say so I encourage you to say G'day in comments on my posts.
