pair of the peak


On my way to Tenerife I was looking out of the window, catching glimpses of ocean between the clouds when I noticed a black peak emerging from teh clouds up ahead - it was Mount Tilde - the mountain on the island and the highest peak in Spain.

Later when I was exploring the town, on clear days I could see the peack above the hills that surround the town - it looks closer than it is because of its size.

So I thought this was a type of look up and look down that I'm unlikely to achieve again - from the air and sealevel.

I enjoyed catching up on all of your pairs from the last week and know there will be lots more this week - perhaps even the start of festive pairs.

This is a great one! Maybe even a once in a lifetime one?

That is clever and very well spotted. I particularly like the one from the plane.

Perfect! I love that memes like this make us see things in unexpected ways. Before your memes, I might have missed this opportunity, but like you, I think I would have grabbed this chance knowing it's an unusual pair.

A great pair Helena, and I love how this meme encourages us all to look more closely and be surprised and delighted. I have gotten behind because there was catching up to do after my 30 day challenge but looking forward to joining in soon.

A gorgeous pair!
I hadn't realized that I neglected to add my link until today.
This reminds me a pit of Hong Kong.

looks like a fabulous place for a vacation...a harbour, cool architecture in the town and mountains!
And you are right..not too many look up and down will involve a view from a plane and sea level!!
