Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sense of Seeing

Where to draw the line with this one. All beauty gives me a sense of seeing. I translate words into sight most of the time as well closely followed by sound. The photo above I love the light on the water and the dark, snowy peaks in the back ground, to me a beautiful scene from Milford Sound in New Zealand.

Looking out windows (above and below) define your sight. Without the openings you would see nothing of the outside world. Again from New Zealand’s beautiful South Island Lake Wanaka and below Mt Cook.

The seal and the two birds were seen through a window as well. A hide, sited part way up the cliff gave us a great view of a sight I would not normally see – A harem of seals. A wonderful sight.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  1. These photos are spectacular and thank you for identifying the locations. So incredible to look through windows and see mountains! Many years ago, a friend showed me a photo of his home up in Oregon, USA. What I thought at first was a beautiful painting on his wall turned out to be the view through his window.

    • Barbara, it is such a novelty for me that I love mountains and snow, particularly if they have water in them as well.


    • I hope you don’t mind my asking, but as an American, I don’t know what a jumper is – an item of clothing but I suspect much different from what we call a jumper, which is a girl’s piece, a skirt, often pleated or A-line, attached to a partial top with a bib and shoulder straps, must be worn over a blouse or sweater. I keep seeing the word jumper in British literature I read but still not sure what it is. How else would you identify a jumper? Thanks for your help.


      • It is a pullover?sweater (but sweater might not be the same in American.) I don’t mind you asking. I have noticed that there are a lot of language differences which mean that some of what I say is misinterpreted by some readers. Despite us all speaking English it can be so different. It has made me much more aware of my language so that it is more universal (I hope) so I’m glad to know where the differences are.

      • Just to add to that jumpers are woollen, knitted items. I think it probably comes from sheep sometimes being referred to as wee woolly jumpers.
