A Word A Week Challenge: Mountain

I love landscape and nature photography.  Everywhere I go, its always a similar but always a bit different and it always brings a new feelings whether its Canada or overseas.

Sue at A Word In Your Ear’s dictionary landed on MOUNTAIN for this week. Since I’m slightly out of commission this week due to some weird cold that I’m trying to get rid of after this crazy plummet in temperature from last week to this week.  I’m taking care of myself and not venturing outside too much unless for work.  With that situation, I went through a lot of my pictures and came out with mountains that I’ve encountered in different parts of Canada and in Hong Kong in the past few trips I’ve been to 🙂

Starting closeby, driving along the countryside highways of Quebec:

Moving over to the Western Canada, we have the famous Rocky Mountains.  I was lucky enough to go there a few years back and they are extremely beautiful 🙂

You know I always give you a picture of myself 🙂

Now lets head on overseas to Hong Kong! You’d be amazed at how many mountains I found there…

And finally, just a little play with words but one of the most epic rides of Disneyland.  I actually think most of them might have this ride.  This is in Disneyland Hong Kong.  However, I didn’t get a chance to go on it 😦 Next time!

Looking at all these mountains really makes me miss hiking and vacation and all those hours upon hours indulging in the beauty of nature and the great outdoors.

Vacation planning definitely has to start again! Another blogger already knows but I’m heading to Maine for vacation in July, any suggestions on where is best to hike there? 🙂

What mountainous range have you seen and loved? Is there a lot of mountains surrounding where you live?

  1. Great shots! You know how I love my beautiful Sierras. I’ve also spent some time in the Rockies (both in Colorado and up in Canada – Whistler/Blackcomb). But, nothing I’ve seen tops the views while backpacking every summer on the JMT and the PCT.
