I did wonder if I had many mountain landscape photos. I did a quick look around and found a few.
Maybe have a listen to my favourite mountain song
I love this view of Mt Vesuvius from Pompeii
Sometimes when heading home the mountains are tinged with blue and shrouded in fog

It is a place of myths and legends. The mountain has always been a place of cultural and traditional significance to the Bundjalung people, a is the site for many ceremonies and initiation rites. In Aboriginal legend, Wollumbin was a giant bird, speared by a warrior. That fatal spear is still visible as a point on the summit. Another legend is that fighting warriors cause the lightning and thunder which is often observed in the area around Wollumbin.
My favourite place to rest and recharge. This was taken after the fires of 2019 showing the Gibraltar Ranges bald spots from Raspberry Lookout
Some days at Raspberry Lookout, the blue and an air of mystery makes me gasp
Of course there is always a sun setting on a mountain as the mountains are west from my place
One of my favourite ancient sites is Pompeii. Among the ruins is pieces of art that have remained intact since the fateful eruption of Mt Vesuvius in AD 79. Take a bit of a scroll with me and have a poke around the houses and buildings of Pompeii.

I am getting so lucky with photo challenges lining up for me, although it’s a bit of a stretch for Jude’s Orange challenge where she asked “Where have you seen orange?” It is a Past Square from #SquareTime and it is from the distant past. A wonderful vessel at Pompeii which held the families food. A bit big for my pantry though.
If the vessel isn’t orange enough, maybe the columns from down the road a bit are?
