Over the Hill and Faraway

This week Donna from Windkisses is hosting Lens-Artists Challenge with the theme “Over the Hill”. This phrase is most used for people getting on in life but it can also mean what is over the hill. Is the climb worth it you think standing at the bottom, and so you start to climb and often when you reach the top there is another hill, tantalising you to keep on climbing.

I searched my archives for hills climbed and for hills driven up, the views are incredible and worth every step from my aching legs.

Castle of Mytilene, Lesbos, Greece

Heimaey Island, Iceland
Coalseam Conservation Park, Western Australia
Phousi Hill, Luang Prabang, Laos
Hai Van Pass, Hue, Vietnam
Loch Lomand and The Trossachs National Park, Scotland

The view is always better at the top, but I think I’m over the hill for getting over the hill!


  1. Haha, I had to laugh at that last saying 🀣🀣 That’s me, I’m afraid – but I do still try sometimes! Your views certainly show that if you can climb a hill you will get a reward!

  2. hahaha. I loved your varied response and the smile at the end. Mya favorite is of the castle in Greece with the ocean in the castle windows. “Tantalizing you to keep on climbing”. Truth. It is a bit like a bag of m&ms for me. I just keep taking it.

    I love that you went through your archives to find different “hills” Viet Nam is on my list for “someday”.

    A delightful, fun submission. Thanks for joining.
