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 →
Not far from Tapanui as we drive north on the highway, there's a long line of our native cabbage trees. On this particular day there was also a very strong relentless wind, it held so steady that the trees were given no respite. This meant that their leaves steadily flowed in the wind without bouncing... Continue Reading →
Evil snarling beast with wicked teeth.. "HOONIGAN" showed up as we were crossing the carpark. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
This lovely photo grabbed my attention on Twitter yesterday. I retweeted it and then thought I'd like to share it on my blog. The photographer (Norfolk, UK) was very kind and also sent me another version. Below is the original phone image I saw on Twitter followed by a more recent camera photo. Click on...

After taking our leave from the beautiful angel at Waipahi Cemetery we went for a long country drive and eventually ended up in Balclutha. Our favourite pizza outlet was shut so we went to Casafuego Eatery and Bar, a colourful establishment with a very friendly skeleton crew 🙂 Balclutha, Clutha District, New Zealand. 22 Nov...

Tea for me is serious business ... Nigel was chief-of-the-teapot but he had camera... Continue Reading →
'Moody Dreams'. Still some nice roses to be found in the Gore Gardens, Southland, New Zealand (it's autumn here in NZ). I asked Nigel to photo this rose for me, taken yesterday afternoon when we had a quick wander through the garden. Text by Liz, photos by Nigel; Exploring Colour (2020)
In Gore there's a family-friendly pub/restaurant called Howl At The Moon and I thought I had some photos from inside but it seems I've deleted them. There's something about wolf imagery that I enjoy and here's two artworks from WP bloggers that caught my eye recently and I thought I'd like to share them. Both... Continue Reading →
Explored a long gravel road to south coast Chrystall's Beach, found this on a cottage. Photo taken by Nigel 08 Dec 2019.
We visited Invercargill today and before leaving for home went to First In Windsor for refreshments. They'd done a great job in decorating the cafe/restaurant for Christmas and we found it cheerful and welcoming. What really caught my attention though was a picture on the wall. Love this! Three separate photos taken by Nigel, edited... Continue Reading →
