Every dog has his day

So they say.. and this one was having a 'reindeer' day. From my 2021 files, these photos were taken 24 December. The cute dog was running around with similarly 'dressed' canine companions near Millers Flat, and I took the rural landscape pics the same afternoon as we returned home via Moa Flat. New Zealand. ~... Continue Reading →

! Cattle Stop

Cattle Stop on a back road in the Otago high country between Middlemarch and Macraes. The boundary sign defines the Waitaki District side vs Dunedin City side. I took these on April 13 when our car trip back involved a deviation from the usual route that we take when we return home from the east... Continue Reading →

Yellow Shed

Standout yellow shed. It's by a stock yard and loading ramp, seen yesterday as we drove toward Dunback from Palmerston. Bright!

Forum Cafe is in the town of Milton, a busy working town with the main highway running through the centre of town and lots of big trucks travelling through. Happily Milton has a lovely cafe with friendly staff and walls covered in bright murals. We've taken to breaking our journey there when going to Dunedin... Continue Reading →

Saw a cute old-fashioned cottage with lizard and butterfly decorations. Then on to Roxburgh. The bridge crosses the Clutha River to the town. We stayed this side though and crossed over...

Autumn Splendour

I took this photo when we went for a local walk on 26 March. On the way back the late sunshine was really lighting up the foliage and I took the shot with my cellphone.. very pleased with the result. The tree is at the edge of a private property, a short distance further along... Continue Reading →

Dawn Colour

This morning I was surprised by a colourful sky outside and Nigel told me he'd already taken a photo. The colours were less bright by the time I got out but I still got a couple of interesting shots. The first pic is the bright shot taken by Nigel, looking east to the Blue Mountains... Continue Reading →

Sheep Saturday

Foggy start to our 'summer' day here in the south of New Zealand. Opened the front door to find the next-door sheep staring straight at me and chewing its cud. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
