ABC Wednesday - A



Here we are again at the start of another round of ABC Wednesday.


I'm having to look through the archives for pictures today - so, A is for Aircraft above in azure blue skies







The next two pictures are from our recent trip to Alaska -




This is the tail of our airplane that brought us back to the UK. You can see that Calgary Airport seemed to be having arctic conditions that day.




Thanks to Mrs Denise Nesbitt and her team who host ABC Wednesday. For more looks at other takes on the letter A, please click here.

Phew the weather conditions looked really chilling! Bet you were pleased you were inside the plane keeping warm!

Thanks so much

I like that last photo. It would usually (in my case anyway) be one of the first to hit the bin!

PS: those word verifications get weirder and weirder: what is a 'wumstopp'?

Kitty said...

If I were more disciplined, I'd do this ABC Wednesday. Your picturs are lovely. :) x

Deb said...

Great A words to start Round 7, Anne! Hope you have a great trip to Alaska and that the weather in Calgary didn't put a damper on your vacation! Hope your week is going well!

Aircraft photos - very appropriate in this neck of the woods, about 8 miles away from the Farnborough Air Show. Love the seaplane!

Aerial photos are always good A-posts! I've always heard Alaska is an Amazing trip. The shot of the Calgary airplane made me want to grab a blanket and curl up by the fire!

Artic is appropriate for a trip to Alaska, no?!
Like the contrails and the rain/snow drops very much,
thanks,
Helen Mac of the ABC team

Some pretty good As there! Yikes, the weather looks foul at Calgary! And you were off to sunny Alaska? I bet you wondered what you'd let yourself in for! LOL!

Cheryl said...

Ooooh. I don't know if I could have gotten on that last plane. Great shot even if it is scary!
