DAILY TRAVEL PHOTO #9

I was selected for this challenge by my friends Tony & Margie from BACK ROADS AND OTHER STORIES and Marie from HopsSkipsandJumps to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to select someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. I normally do not participate in challenges, but, hey, this is a crazy year, so I will participate in this one and will do my best to make it to the end of the ten days. For now, I select my friend Bernhard from Der Amateur Photograph for this challenge. Please link to me if you decide to participate. If you are not interested or do not have time to participate, no worries.  My photos will literally be all over the map.

Yesterday’s photo was taken on the Beach to Cliff walk at Mangawhai (Manga-fy as wh is pronounced f in Maori) Heads on near on New Zealand’s North Island. Taken in November 2014. One of the best walks we did on our trip.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Not Alaska or Alberta. I am going to break the rules and tell you it was Fox Glacier (Glah-see-uhr) near the town of Fox Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand. Taken in December 2014. We had hiked to the viewpoint and I caught this shot as the sun was climbing higher into the sky. That was a great memory for the view, but not for the amount of ice recession we saw since our last trip. The lower edges of Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers are very close to Sea Level and very accessible for that reason. Stay well and thanks for reading. Allan

    1. Definitely a glacier, but in the Southern Hemisphere where they pronounce it Glah-see-uhr. Fox Glacier on the South Island of New Zealand. The pinnacle ice was more pronounced as it was changing from spring to summer and the sun shines bright down there. Thanks for reading Bernie. Stay well. Allan

    1. It was a sight to behold, for sure. I hope it is not to late to protect the glaciers. They are a major part of the climate control and fresh water supplies. Thanks for the reads and follow. Love and best wishes to you and your family, as well. Stay well. Allan

    1. So lucky to have good viewing of these 2 South Island glaciers. Great hikes and viewing points, not without their hazards. The terminal face is as low as 300 m above sea level. The South island is drop dead gorgeous. Thanks for reading. Stay well Maggie. Allan
