Ailsa’s travel theme this week is Dark. It’s not always easy to take a night shot without a tripod though at times, a handheld shot that shows blur or camera shake can still work. Here are a few shots from my travels, hand held and with tripod.
Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack has a weekly travel photo theme. This week it’s Hills. While I don’t go hiking or hill walking, we do encounter hills on our drives, train rides, etc. and traversing through cities which almost always have hills. Some more than others. The steepest city I’ve ever been in was St. John’s, Newfoundland, the easternmost province in Canada. The streets soar up from the harbour, some so steep they actually have little staircases in parts of them. Here are a few photos featuring hills.
First, from one of my favourite parts of England, the Peak District National Park
Next up is a view from another of my favourite regions, the Lake District.
Here in Canada, you can’t beat the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia for dramatic scenery.
Then there are the rolling hills of the tiny province of Prince Edward Island.
And last, Sacre Coeur, high on the hill overlooking Paris
