WPC – All-Time Favorites

As most of you may know already, The Daily Post is packing it in and this week’s photo challenge will be their last.

Due to a lack of time I haven’t participated in this weekly challenge in quite a while, but whenever I do pop in to poke around, through this challenge I have been exposed to and come to appreciate the talent and creative skills of many terrific people here on WordPress.

All this to say: I will miss this challenge greatly.

For the finale they’re appropriately asking to see everyone’sΒ All-Time FavoritesΒ so here’s a somewhat incomplete selection of my all-time non-door personal faves:

Western Brook Pond – Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland

Sunrise Coloured Sky, Montreal

Threatening Skies Over New York City

Montmorency Falls in Winter, Quebec City

Morning Mist Over Tuscan Hills

Mountain Glaciers – Gornergrat/Zermatt, Switzerland

California Coastline

Swiss Castle – Aigle, Switzerland

California Desert, Joshua Tree National Park

Ponte Vechio – Florence, Italy

Original Selfie – Mascouche, Quebec

Purple and Blue – Butterfly Exhibit, Montreal Botanical Gardens

The Early Bird Gets the Shot, Eagle Point – Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona

Old Farm Equipment – Countryside north-east of Montreal

For those looking for some other weekly photo challenges to participate in to fill the void, the list of events and challenges available on WordPress can be found here

FYI I hear there’s a fun weekly photo challenge on Thursdays that’s frequented by a bunch of weirdo door fanatics that you might want to try πŸ˜‰

I hope to see you there.

Thanks for looking!

  13. Gorgeous photos! I was amazed at the one of Montmorency Falls. Having seen it in the summer, it’s hard to imagine it being frozen. I think you and I stood at the exact same spot to take the picture of the California coast. Lucky you for having the fog make the picture extra special.

    These are all award winning shots to be sure. Is the Cali coastline from the Big Sur area? Sure looks like it.

    Those ARE some amazing photos! If I had to choose a favorite, it would be the one of the Tuscan hills. That is just simply rapturous.

      Thanks Marian. That Tuscan one brings back some wonderful memories. A few years back we were very fortunate to take our morning coffee and admire the scenery from that spot for an entire week.

    Hi Norm. I was happy to see some photos from your Canadian travels. The fishing cove capture is stunning. Loved seeing all your favorites. πŸ™‚

  19. Just excellent. I planned to tell you my favourites but soon there were too many to keep track. Both from California and the butterfly are surely in there, and the entire last third. πŸ™‚ I’m choosing photos from my old WPC posts right now as well but I’m only on my first blog and already have enough for one post. I think it’s safe to say there will be more than one best of post. πŸ™‚ So glad you did you compilation!

  24. You have some marvelous shots here, Norm. I’m sad to see the challenge go, as it was such a great way to meet people from all over the world without having to follow a million blogs, which I simply don’t have time to do. But that Thursday Doors challenge you mention is a winner, too. πŸ™‚
