Ailsa’s Travel Theme: White

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”Β  Jimmy Hendrix

Ailsa’s travel theme ‘White’, is in honour of the 30th anniversary of ” International Day of Peace.” She has some wonderful white images on her post, which you really mustn’t miss.

My contribution to the theme is a few of my whitest nature photos, starting with this one from our 2010 trip to Wyoming. On our way to Yellowstone National Park, we encountered some of the snowiest and coldest conditions that we’d ever had to drive in, and this was in May. πŸ™‚

From cold to hot, here is one of the amazing geysers we encountered. It looked just like a boiling cauldron, and to see the snow and ice around the rim was really bizarre.

Here we have more white water, but this time at Niagara Falls. What a wonder to see this breathtaking sight from the Skylon viewing tower.

Talking about white water, I thought I’d slip this one in of our son having fun at the start of his white water rafting adventure at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.

When our daughter and family were living in Vancouver, we went up to Whistler for the day. It was certainly very white there, and I don’t think I’ve ever shivered so much in my life.

Of course, nature isn’t all about hot, cold and wet; there are also the beautiful wild animals. We got quite close to white lions at a wild-life park in Johannesburg. This was the Big Daddy of them all,

and I’m sure you wouldn’t want me to forget the gorgeous white tiger cubs, would you? πŸ˜‰

I hope you enjoyed my white pics, and wish you all a very happy, relaxing, and peace-filled weekend.

  2. Great pics, thanks for sharing AP! How many layers do you have to wear to stay warm in that frozen bliss?

  3. I always love how snow beautifies the surrounding, esp. the one in Florence :D. Only though, I hate cold!
    I badly need a trip to see a fall, any fall.

  4. Brrrr. You’re making me feel cold and that is no small feat here in Oman. I miss the snow and the cold and love Yellowstone National Park and white tigers. Can you believe, as an American, I’ve never seen Niagara Falls? Great post for the white theme, Sylvia!
