Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

The latest prompt for the Weekly Photo Challenge was ‘Grand’.  My selected photos for this week were taken in France, Spain, Tenerife and Australia.  Probably the most awe-inspiring of these was being at the bottom of the second deepest lock in Europe, Bollene, on the Rhone in southern France.  It’s very cold, dark and damp down there, even on the brightest summer day.

About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  2. Very cool, Sandra. BTW, how do you get the little snowflakes on your blog? I’ve seen them elsewhere and would love to do them on mine.

      Hi Janet, it was something I did last year, and although I can’t remember how I did it, apparently it’s automatically now set for December each year. It just appeared on Sunday! Tomorrow, when I’m not basking in the warm glow of two glasses of rioja, I will try to determine how it happened. 🙂

I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
