Travel Theme: Behind

On the road to Jasper, Alberta. Our first amazing view from behind the trees and hills.

“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.” Nathaniel Hawthorne

 

Wow! Just had to stop on the highway to take a photo from behind this railing. 

 

Edmonton’s must see botanical gardens. Behind this sign, one of four pyramids peaks out. Each pyramid maintains a distinct environment representing different biomes of the world. 

 

Behind this metal sculpture, some cacti from the arid biome are flourishing.

 

I took a photo of the glass striations on a building in downtown Edmonton and you can see the scenery behind me being reflected.

      Thank-you, Lindy. My daughter drove us from Edmonton to see the mountains in Jasper on our recent Christmas visit there. When I saw that scene, I was inspired to stop and take the shot.

    The landscape photos in particular are amazing. And I love the Hawthorne quote too. Very fitting!

    Incredible photos Olga. The first and second ones deserve a haiku each.
