Travel theme: Mountains from Where’s My Backpack

The Travel theme: Mountains Weekly challenge comes from 

and as I have finished the January Photo challenge, I thought I would join in. Also a great opportunity to showcase some of my amateur ( but I love them) photos of mountains. One or two may be reposts, but worthwhile reposts….

This is something quite relaxing when sitting in the peace and quiet gazing at a mountain scene ( preferably with snow atop) especially where the mountain meets the water line.

Here is my contribution: –

    1. The countries are quite similar in many ways, and I laughed when I saw a posterboard advertising New Zealand in Copenhagen. It said,” Norway? No New Zealand!” Against a backdrop of mountains and fjord!
