Stairway to Blue Domed Church

This is one of the many blue domed churches in Oia, Santorini Greece. I especially liked the way the sun reflected on the water. We were there in November when almost all tourists had left. The harsh sun of the summer was gone and now in this late fall the sun was lower and created this wonderful line in the deep blue of the caldera. The light seemed to be moving all around us and bounced off the white washed buildings to create this wonderful scene. All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.

Photograph of the weaver’s hands was taken in Kusadasi, Turkey. Colorful rugs hang all around the room and the weaver sits in the center for all to view her work.

The Bridge

Photograph was taken of the bridge and wildlife at Patagonia Lake, Patagonia, Arizona, USA. Tucked away in the rolling hills of southeastern Arizona is a hidden treasure. Patagonia Lake State Park was established in 1975 as a state park and is an ideal place to find whitetail deer roaming the hills and great blue herons walking the shoreline. The campground overlooks a 265-acre man-made lake where anglers catch crappie, bass, bluegill, and catfish. Trout is stocked every three weeks from October through March. The tracks of the New Mexico/Arizona railroad lie beneath the lake and remnants of the old historic line may be found at the Nature Conservancy in Patagonia. Hikers can stroll along the beautiful creek trail and see a variety of birds such as the canyon towhee, Inca dove, vermilion flycatcher, black vulture, and several species of hummingbirds. – Patagonia Lake State Park Website. ___________________________ *Please DO NOT pin my work to pinterest - tumblr - WeHeartIt or any other “pinning” site!

The Golden one

One has to really take a look to see these little flowers on this Barrel Cactus as they are quite small, only about 1.5 inches across. The flowers are not very visible in relation with the size of the barrel, and they can get lost into the creamy colored wool at the top of the globe. But they are quite unique. One could almost think that this is some underwater kind of sea life but it is just a simple flower here in bloom in spring in the Arizona Sonoran Desert. All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.

All rights are reserved. Copying, altering, displaying or redistribution of any of these images without written permission from the Artist is strictly prohibited. Prickly Pear Cactus Genus Opuntia Most prickly pear cactus have yellow, red or purple flowers, even among the same species. They vary in height from less than a foot (Plains, Hedgehog, Tuberous) to 6 or 7 feet (Texas, Santa Rita, Pancake). Pads can vary in width, length, shape and color. The Beavertail, Santa Rita and Blind Pear are regarded as spineless, but all have glochids. Prickly pear cactus represent about a dozen species of the Opuntia genus (Family Cactaceae) in the North American deserts. All have flat, fleshy pads that look like large leaves. The pads are actually modified branches or stems that serve several functions -- water storage, photosynthesis and flower production. Chollas are also members of the Opuntia genus but have cylindrical, jointed stems rather than flat pads. Like other cactus, most prickly pears and chollas have large spines -- actually modified leaves -- growing from tubercles -- small, wart-like projections -- on their stems. But members of the Opuntia genus are unique because of their clusters of fine, tiny, barbed spines called glochids. Found just above the cluster of regular spines, glochids are yellow or red in color and detach easily from the pads. Glochids are often difficult to see and more difficult to remove, once lodged in the skin. http://www.desertusa.com/cactus/prickly-pear-cactus.html

Copying, altering, displaying or redistribution of any of these images without written permission from the Artist is strictly prohibited. The Ring of Brodgar (or Brogar, or Ring o' Brodgar) is a Neolithic henge and stone circle in Orkney, Scotland. Most henges do not contain stone circles; Brodgar is a striking exception, ranking with Avebury (and to a lesser extent Stonehenge) among the greatest of such sites.[1] The ring of stones stands on a small isthmus between the Lochs of Stenness and Harray. These are the northernmost examples of circle henges in Britain.[2] Unlike similar structures such as Avebury, there are no obvious stones inside the circle,[3] but since the interior of the circle has never been excavated by archaeologists, the possibility remains that wooden structures, for example, may be present. The site has resisted attempts at scientific dating and the monument's age remains uncertain. It is generally thought to have been erected between 2500 BC and 2000 BC, and was, therefore, the last of the great Neolithic monuments built on the Ness.[4] A project called The Ring of Brodgar Excavation 2008 was undertaken in the summer of that year in an attempt to settle the age issue and help answer other questions about a site that remains relatively poorly understood.[5] The results of the excavation are still preliminary. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_of_Brodgar

Beautiful Harbor

The beautiful harbor of St. Peter Port, England. ************* Saint Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey as well as the main port. The population in 2001 was 16,488. In Guernsiais and in French, historically the official language of Guernsey, the name of the town and its surrounding parish is St Pierre Port. The "port" distinguishes this parish from Saint Pierre Du Bois. As well as being a parish, St. Peter Port is a small town consisting mostly of steep narrow streets and steps on the overlooking slopes. It is known that a trading post/town has existed here since before Roman times, the pre-Christian name of which has not survived into the modern era. The post code for addresses in this parish starts with GY1. People from St. Peter Port, were nicknamed "les Villais" (the townspeople) or "cllichards" in Guernsiais. St. Peter Port is located on the east coast of Guernsey. It borders St Sampson's in the north, The Vale in the north-west, St Andrew's in the west and St Martin's in the south. On the seaward side it faces Herm to the east, across the Little Roussel, and Sark and Brecqhou even further east across the Big Roussel between them and Herm. The Brhon Tower sits in the Little Roussel between St Peter Port and Herm. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.

Early Morning

Entering Greenock, Scotland harbor early morning. Greenock is a historic industrial town by the Firth of Clyde, 25 miles west of Glasgow. Greenock grew from a fishing community to become the site of the first dock on the Clyde in 1711. Shipbuilding and overseas trade transformed Greenock over the subsequent centuries. The town's maritime history is shown at the Custom House Museum, while the McLean Museum and Art Gallery dedicates a room to Greenock's most famous son, the steam engine pioneer James Watt. Much of the west end of Greenock retains its impressive Victorian buildings, not least the 245-foot Victoria Tower crowning the town hall. Ferries run from Victoria Harbour along the Firth of Clyde to Dunoon and other destinations. http://www.visitscotland.com/en-us/info/towns- villages/greenock-p237421 All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.

Belem Tower

Cruising into Lisbon and passing by the Belem Tower on the way to the dock. Belém Tower (Portuguese: Torre de Belém, pronounced: [ˈtoʁ(ɨ) dɨ bɨˈlɐ̃ȷ̃]) or the Tower of St Vincent is a fortified tower located in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém in the municipality of Lisbon, Portugal. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (along with the nearby Jerónimos Monastery) because of the significant role it played in the Portuguese maritime discoveries of the era of the Age of Discoveries.The tower was commissioned by King John II to be part of a defense system at the mouth of the Tagus river and a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon. The tower was built in the early 16th century and is a prominent example of the Portuguese Manueline style, but it also incorporates hints of other architectural styles. The structure was built from lioz limestone and is composed of a bastion and the 30 m (100 foot),[1] four storey tower. It has incorrectly been stated that the tower was built in the middle of the Tagus and now sits near the shore because the river was redirected after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. In fact, the tower was built on a small island in the Tagus River near the Lisbon shore. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bel%C3%A9m_Tower All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.

Cruising Along Lisbon

Cruising along the Tagus River heading to our port in Lisbon we passed by the The Discoveries Monument. This is the daytime view with the crowds starting to discover this monument. The Discoveries Monument was built in Lisbon in honor of the great Henry the Navigator, who led Portugal’s discovery expeditions into the New World during the 15th century. The Monument The fifty meter (171ft) tall monument, shaped like a ship's prow, stands at the marina in Belém, the starting point for many of Portugal's explorers. This is where in 1497 Vasco da Gama embarked on his voyage to India and in Monument to the Discoveries seen from the Tagus river 1493 a storm forced Christopher Columbus to anchor here on his way back to Spain after his discovery of the Americas. The monument shows more than thirty statues of people who played an important role in the discoveries. Leading the way is Henry the Navigator who is shown standing on the bow holding a model of a caravel. Behind him are king Afonso V - who supported the exploration and colonization of Africa - and the explorers Vasco da Gama (who found a direct route to India), Pedro Álvares Cabral (discoverer of Brazil) and Ferdinand Magellan (the first explorer to circumnavigate the world). They are followed by navigators, writers, missionaries, a mathematician, a map maker and other figures from the era of the discoveries. http://www.aviewoncities.com/lisbon/padraodosdescobrimentos.htm Tagus River, Portuguese Rio Tejo, Spanish Río Tajo, longest waterway of the Iberian Peninsula. It rises in the Sierra de Albarracín of eastern Spain, at a point about 90 miles (150 km) from the Mediterranean coast, and flows westward across Spain and Portugal for 626 miles (1,007 km) to empty into the Atlantic Ocean near Lisbon. Its drainage basin of 31,505 square miles (81,600 square km) is only exceeded on the peninsula by that of the Ebro River, to the northeast. The Tagus covers the heart of Portugal and Spain and has been of vital importance to the modern economic development of the two nations. All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.

Cobh is on the south side of Great Island in Cork Harbour and is home to Ireland's only dedicated cruise terminal. Queenstown, as the East Cork Town of Cobh was earlier called, before reverting to its old Irish name in 1922 - the Cobh (cove) of Cork. Is there anywhere in Ireland more full of poignant memories than this embarkation point for America? From here hundreds of thousands of mostly hungry and penniless Irish men and women left to build a new life, especially in the Famine years of 1844-48. Many thrived and prospered, but many died on the journey in the terrible travelling conditions of the time. Cobh is a pleasant waterside town, with brightly coloured houses where its streets climb the steep slope of a hill, the top of which is crowned by the imposing Cobh Cathedral, St. Coleman's Cathedral with its carillon of 47 bells. East Corks most impressive Cathedral. Cobh is situated on Great Island, one of the three large islands in Cork harbour which are all now joined by roads and bridges - Little Island and Fota are the other islands. http://www.cork-guide.ie/cobh.htm 4 photos taken in RAW & stitched together

Honoring

Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Angel Fire, New Mexico. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial was constructed from 1968-1971 and was the first major Vietnam Memorial in the United States.The purpose of the David Westphall Veterans Foundation is to honor America's veterans and members of its military forces by memorializing the sacrifices they have made and by recognizing the sense of duty and the courage they have displayed as they answered their country's call to arms. This purpose is achieved primarily by supporting the mission of the the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park. The park provides a memorial to veterans and a Visitors Center that serve as a place for reunion, reflection, healing, and sharing of experiences. The memorial was originally known as the Vietnam Veterans Peace and Brotherhood Chapel and had its origins in a battle near Con Thien, South Vietnam in which 16 men lost their lives. Among the men, was David Westphall, son of Victor and Jeanne Westphall. Thanks to their vision and determination the memorial exists today to honor not only these 16 Marines but all members of America's armed forces.http://www.vietnamveteransmemorial.org/All images are copyright © Lucinda Walter.
