The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Amy.

Banner photo is a window with a view built in. It’s Tiffany Window – Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Once upon a time this was a very favored special spot, partly for the superb windows with a view. Blue River, CO, facing south toward Hoosier Pass:

2017, on a Scotland and Ireland tour. I believe these were once windows looking into the interior of a manor house. Time, tide, and nature waits for no man:

Kate and Wills, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, went to school in St. Andrews, Scotland, and likely gazed out of these windows:

Where Kate met Wills (for coffee), if you can read the fine print. Yes, here and in every other coffee shop in town while they were in school.

The Scotland/Ireland tour. Oh the stories stones could tell, if stones told stories. They keep their secrets well:

Looking out a window of the Millicent Rogers Museum, absolutely THE place for an education in southwest jewelry and crafts art:

Window with a View from a tour barge in the Netherlands, on a bike-and-barge tour with International Bicycle Tours in 2015:

Bus Window with a View leaving the Kinderdijk village in the Netherlands:

Float-plane Window with a View while circling Denali in Alaska. I’m not positive if this particular mountain is Denali, but you get the idea:

As always, kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

Best wishes for 2020.

    Beautiful set of widow views, especially the images you took on your on a Scotland and Ireland tour. Fantastic mountain capture, Wow…

  4. Tatiana says:

    Very nice photos! I especially like the view of the Blue River from the restaurant.

  5. Tina Schell says:

    Wow John, a great collection. The Tiffany is amazing! We booked a scenic plane in Denali but couldn’t take it as the weather socked us in😫. So I appreciate your photo even more!

  6. You know the Blue River is near and dear to my heart 🙂

  7. Mei-Mei says:

    Someday, I want to have a house with a library with that Tiffany window in it! 😂

  8. aekshots says:

    Very nice views John…well done.

  9. I love views through a window John; these are great!

    • JohnRH says:

      Thank you Sue. How is Australia doing? I have friends visiting in May.

      • John. It’s incredibly incredibly sad here. So many homes lost. Firefighters died and home owners died which is devastating let alone the animals. They are saying up to one billion have died. All of it brings me to tears nearly every day. But some wonderful people helping with $ and donations. I like to do my bit to help people and animals. Thank you so much for asking. I hope your friends are ok.

      • JohnRH says:

        Thanks for the info. It is beyond tragic.

  10. Prior... says:

    excellent variety and I do wonder what kind of stories those old stones would rattle off…

  11. What a great selection of windows, John.

  12. Perhaps that little boat is daydreaming of being on the water? 🙂

  13. myplaidheart says:

    Number one and number three are my favorites. That Tiffany window is beautiful!

  14. Some great window shots, John! I especially like the one of the old manor house.

  15. Olga says:

    Always love seeing the stories that ancient stones can tell. Inspiring to the imagination. That circle window with the fence in the background is really intriguing. Really interesting post, John. ❤

  16. Sarah says:

    Wonderful windows and views! Especially love the view of Mount Dinale out of a plane’s window – it’s always great to change one’s point of view. 😉

  17. Wendy says:

    An excellent set of shots, John. Run your hand over those old stones and you’ll feel their stories.

  18. Amy says:

    This is a great collection, John. I love the old architecture from the Scotland/Ireland tour. That Alaska mountain is gorgeous. I hope to see a view like that someday. 🙂

  19. It seems we have been to many of the same places! Your photos bring back memories for me!
