Wyndham, Southland, New Zealand. Taken 18 August 2019 by Liz (L) and Nigel (N) (L) - cropped detail (N) (L) (N) I adjusted... Continue Reading →
These three photos were taken from Moa Flat, same location as the photos in my last post Moa Flat in Winter. This time Nigel is facing west to the Umbrella Mountains. I asked him to take photos as the snow patterns on the slopes were lovely. Each photo shows the Umbrella Mountains, but further to... Continue Reading →

It's been one of THOSE days. Snow snowed, deeper and deeper. I made a pot of tea. Power cut. Came back on after an hour or so. Made coffee. Another power cut, out for hours this time, back on about 4.30pm. Why can't 'they' keep the power going when you most need it? Nigel went... Continue Reading →
Just reminding you northern hemisphere folks that it's not sweltering hot everywhere in the world. I'm trying hard to ignore all the white stuff around our house that fell overnight. I love the snow up on the mountains, that's beautiful. Not so keen on it lying all around our house! It fell overnight and we're... Continue Reading →
Nowhere To Go. ©Louise Gallagher. We danced at the edge leaning into the horizon where the sky bled blue in the limitless possibility of life spent dreaming of our tomorrows forever after. Day turned night fell dawn rose in the light growing dimmer grey on grey nothing but this place where you are gone and... Continue Reading →
I can't help but be fascinated by the colour blue. Since childhood I've liked blue in its various forms especially turquoise, cobalt blue and navy blue. I'm intrigued how blue can be perceived as negative or sad (feeling blue) yet many people profess that blue is their favourite colour and genuinely like it. When I... Continue Reading →
The bad bout of flu threw me off balance. It got me thinking about a depressed state of mind and the help that's available. The world around us has lots to offer. So do the people around us. It's pretty typical though to suffer flu in the winter and the world can seem a very... Continue Reading →
Admiring this brilliant photo by Steve Gingold I pondered the words for my title. I'd found the photo on his blog, requested permission, got a prompt response, and wanted to publish. I considered Silent Admiration (my response when I first saw the photo) but it seemed too ho-hum. I focused on the beauty of colour... Continue Reading →
Unusually nice day on Saturday for a winter weekend. After visiting our local cafe we did a loop walk around part of town and enjoyed the bright landscape - nice change from all the grey we've had over the last few weeks. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand -- photos taken by Nigel Walking along a... Continue Reading →
