Photo of the Week: Seattle Space Needle

I just love this unique view of Seattle’s Space Needle. I took this picture from inside the Glass House at the incredible Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit. Framing the Space Needle in this photo, is a suspended 1,400-piece, 100-foot-long glass sculpture, created by artist Dale Chihuly. If you are ever in Seattle, I strongly recommend you…

Photo of the Week: Mont Saint Michel in Film

When I went to France on a school trip in 1998, I thought Mont Saint Michel was the coolest place. It seemed so mysterious to me as I watched it come into view from the the bus window. This huge 8th century Gothic-style Benedictine abbey is built on a rocky island that is surrounded by water at…

  • Thomas - Good photograph nonetheless. If you went now, you would notice a lot of changes. The causeway and the parking lot have been removed and now a raised causeway means Mont Saint Michel is an Island again. Have a look at my blog for photographs taken in June.August 28, 2013 – 2:32 amReplyCancel

    • Rhonda Krause - I checked out your article. I think the raised causeway is a great move. Mont Saint Michel looks stunning surrounded by water!August 30, 2013 – 12:27 amReplyCancel

  • Michelle McAnally Woods - Going in a few weeks- it has been on my bucket list since I had a poster of it on my wall as a child! Thanks for sharing.May 2, 2014 – 9:09 amReplyCancel

Photo of the Week: Sanctuary of Athena, Delphi

The Sanctuary of Athena is the most picturesque spot at Ancient Delphi and the Tholos, backed by a valley of olive trees, is Delphi’s most stunning monument. Built between 380 and 360 BC, the Tholos may have sheltered an important statue, although the exact purpose of the structure is unknown. The three columns that stand have…

Photo of the Week: Bridal Falls, British Columbia

When I visited Bridal Falls in British Columbia, my first thought was that it had been named appropriately. The water cascading down the smooth rocks creates a delicate look similar to a bridal veil. Not only beautiful, the height of the falls is impressive as well. Bridal Falls is the 6th largest waterfall in Canada,…
