Apple Harvest

Returning from Roxburgh on 17 April, I asked Nigel to stop and park by an apple orchard at Ettrick so I could take photos. Actually I took a lot.. it was hard to know how to get decent photos from this nice but fairly ordinary scene. The workers had finished for the day so I... Continue Reading →

In The Spotlight

Recently we were driving back from Moa Flat toward Heriot when we got these dramatic views looking over toward the Blue Mountains at Tapanui. We knew the light wouldn't last long and Nigel quickly took a shot through the windscreen (1st photo below) and the other two were taken outside of the car. West Otago,... Continue Reading →

Also feeling genuinely grateful for the many blessings I enjoy. And thank you for stopping by 🙂 Ettrick (southern end of Central Otago). New Zealand. Click on the... Continue Reading →

Back Country Otago

Central Otago back country is wonderful to explore, exhilarating to experience. Yesterday we drove to Roxburgh, crossed the hydro dam across the Clutha River, and continued on the east side of the river with the intention of looping back to town. But then we saw a side road heading off into what looked like interesting... Continue Reading →
