Skyline

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Skyline.

I decided to go with a local skyline with some interesting geology.

This is the Niagara Escarpment in autumn with Wiarton Marina below. This is the same escarpment the the Niagara River flows over at Niagara Falls on the Canada/U.S. border. The escarpment starts and ends in the U.S. after traveling across part of southern Ontario and forming the eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula. You can see sections of the limestone face of the escarpment through the trees.

Gaggle

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Giggle or Gaggle.

The first thing I did was Google the definition of gaggle to see if there was a number range that constitutes a gaggle. All I found was a gaggle is three or more geese on land or water. Three or more geese flying are a skein.

A gaggle of Canada Geese on Hurleston Reservoir near Nantwich in southern Cheshire in the autumn.

Soon

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Soon.

My first thought on reading the prompt was Christmas before realising that that would be a lot of people’s choice.

Then I remembered that there was another significant date sooner than Christmas. Tomorrow is the winter solstice.

Obviously I can’t travel ahead to tomorrow so here’s a photo taken a few hours after the winter solstice last year.

History

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt History.

You may wonder how a frozen puddle on a sandstone outcrop dropping down to a shallow valley is historical.

The sandstone outcrop is on the edge of a steep hill that forms part of the Sandstone Trail on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England.

This steep hillside formed the northern and western edge of an Iron Age hill fort known as Maiden Castle. I am standing where someone would have been living centuries before the Roman invasion.
