  1. Superb *V* post – great photography! Would love to join in snorkelling in Anse Chastanet! Looks so in*v*iting!

    Have a great weekend,

    Visiting from Alphabe-Thursday!

  2. The mountains at Pyramid Lake look like a pretty!

  3. Very beautiful indeed. There's nothing like some peace and quiet when on vacation!

  4. How beautiful! You certainly captured the feeling of serenity in each photo... I especially like the daisies and stream at Glacier National Park.

  5. That is some beautiful photography! Love the view through the trees. So pretty and a great angle.

    What kind of camera do you use? It takes exceptional photos!

  6. They are sooo petty places to go. I was guessing as I scrolled down.
    Got St. Lucia, Montana, and the Mexican coast. We did like you and rented a car in St. Lucia. That scene is very pretty when it comes into view.

    (Our car was a Rent-a-wreck with fairly bald tires. They would spin when trying an uphill start so we would have to back down to more level ground and get a running start.)

  7. Beautiful! Love the bright blue sky and I almost feel the fresh air. You must have a wonderful time :)

  8. Oh how I wish I was in any of those locations! Thanks for sharing your photos!

  9. Just beautiful! All of these scenes are so peaceful.
