Amy‘s theme this week for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #31 is Landscapes. I included some photos of natural landscape and architecturally designed landscape.
I took this photo on the Alaska trip when our train passed by Hurricane Gorge, Alaska. They named it because the wind could go 150 miles per hour. The train slowed down for passengers to take photos from the bridge. The Hurricane Gulch Bridge is a 918 feet long steel arch railroad bridge and is 296 feet above the Hurricane creek. It is both the longest and tallest bridge on the entire Alaska Railroad.
This week the theme for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Reflection, from Patti Moed.
The photos I selected for this post are reflections of water I admired during different trips near and far.
This is Puente
de Alcántara Bridge over the calm river, Toledo Spain.
I took a
photo of the yacht during our whale watching trip at Newport Harbor California.
On the same
day of the whale watching, we had dinner at the beach and watched the sunset.

I have been
living in southern California for 40 years. Last week was the first time my
husband and I went on a cruise to see the Holiday Lights. All the homes, their
yachts, cruise boats and restaurants by the water were decorated with Christmas
lights. It was a treat from my daughter!
Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #25 – Reflections
When I saw Patti’s prompt for Lens-Artist Photo Challenge: #13 Look Up. I know exactly what photos I have for this post.
Among all the countries we’ve traveled, Spain is one country where I spent a lot of time “looking up.” I love the Spanish architecture in general and I was most impressed with the architecture of cathedrals. When we visited the Great Mosque of Córdoba, I was walking with my head tilted, looking up and taking photos to an extent that I lost my tour group. I was panic because that place is enormous. The tour guide took the group to go from one Chapel to the other. Fortunately (most of the time), I could locate my 6’4″ husband. I quickly rejoined the group.
It was fun finding the photos from my Spain trip for this post.
