Where’s My Backpack. Paths can take many shapes and forms: straight and narrow, long and winding, smooth or bumpy and it is the variety that makes life interesting although I notice most of my images of paths feature gardens and trees, wonder what that says about me 🙂

What incredibly stunning photographs. I think I love the New Zealand ones the most, although in truth, it’s very difficult to choose.
Thank you, they span a few years and several holidays. New Zealand does have some beautiful places to go walking, the scenery does provide alot of fodder for photographers.
A good path is a great adventure just waiting to start!
So true, looking forward to more great adventures!
So many lovely pathways that I’d love to follow, Sam. I’ve been pretty close to a couple of them. 🙂
They are lovely pathways, as much as I love following new paths, rediscovering previously trodden ones also brings my joy 🙂
I love the photo of Versailles. It brings back many happy memories of my trip to Paris. It was frosty when I visited Versailles and the light was amazing.
Thank you. Versaille had some magical paths, would love to see it on a frosty day 🙂
I think Wanaka may just be my spiritual home… it is SUCH a beautiful part of the world…
I understand, it is a truly beautiful place.
These are such beautiful and peaceful pictures – I’d like to follow all of them!
Thank you, I bet you have followed some beautiful paths of late 🙂
Some beautiful paths there – we loved our visit to New Zealand recently 🙂
Thank you. Yes, New Zealand is a wonderful place and I love it when people say that they’ve been there and loved it, it is like a second home for me.
