Travel theme: Paths

Today’s collection of images is motivated by the latest travel theme from Ailsa of 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.

    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…

      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.
