It is difficult to choose my all time favourites for the final weekly photo challenge but here are a few of the photos I treasure for various reasons; happy memories, lovely holidays, and just because… I hope you enjoy them.
The view from Wiseman’s Bridge towards Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire, West Wales
The Azure Window on the island of Gozo, it fell into the sea following a storm last year. Feel privileged to have seen it.

Peonies, my most favourite flower
This pearl monument is sited at the entrance to the Dhow Harbour in Doha, Qatar.

This is a guide to the Creek Street area of Ketchikan in Alaska. Fascinating place with some interesting history. Married Man’s Trail led over the river and through the woods… but definitely not to grandma’s house!!

This shot was taken off the coast of Majorca, at Camp de Mar. I love the way that the glorious colours of the landscape just fade to grey..

This photograph was taken on South Beach Florida. Although you may not guess from this shot, the weather during our stay was beautiful. We came across this family enjoying their lunch, oblivious of the hungry birds.

On a flight to Whistler from Vancouver, the mountains just appeared through the cloud. I’m not sure of this really qualifies as Fleeting, but it was a magical sight.
