I have been an amateur photographer for most of my life, and have taken classes both in high school and at the college level. After emigrating to Canada as a child,I grew up in British Columbia, Canada, but moved to northern Alberta 10 years ago. It took me several years to get used to the change in geography and ultimately to embrace the sublime harmony of the Peace Country. Since then I have been on a mission to share this part of the world with whomever cares to see. I think that Google Earth, and Panoramio are a wonderful way for those of us who can not travel the earth ourselves to see the beauty of it anyway. I have a daughter on Panoramio here, http://www.panoramio.com/user/3101516 , and my father is also on here, http://www.panoramio.com/user/3012652 . Besides the local landscape I have interest in capturing the feline form, flowers and old vehicles. I also have a growing collection of murals from local artists. By learning, I am a Horticulturist, but these days I work in a Sawmill, and I enjoy my work very much. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my take on the Peace Country of northern Alberta, Canada. Vicki

so kann man sich zumindest nicht verlaufen ;-)

La légende des boeufs de Laon En levant la tête au ciel vers les tours, pas d'hallucination, il s'agit bien de boeufs. Au total de 16, ces boeufs grandeur nature sont là pour rappeler que les boeufs furent chargés de monter sur la butte de Laon depuis la carrière de Chemizy les pierres nécessaires à la construction de l'ensemble des travées de la nef. La légende indique que ces boeufs sont là pour rappeler l'apparition miraculeuse d'un boeuf blanc alors apparu dans le ciel et qui aurait aidé le charroi dont l'un des équipages s'affaissa de fatigue, à transporter les matériaux au sommet de la butte.
