Playtime

Last night I made a start on tidying my Gmail account (it'll be a long process). In a folder of 'Keepsakes' I found a message Nigel sent me, 31 March 2010. Attached was a morning moon shot taken where we lived back then, in the alpine tourist resort of Queenstown. I found I still like... Continue Reading →

Waikoikoi Moon

Driving home after a longish local joy-trip this evening, we were stunned to see a big orange moon rising over the brow of a hill. Nigel instantly pulled over into a side road so we could enjoy seeing it rise over the ridge. My camera on auto didn't do well but I've jazzed the shots... 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 →

Forum Cafe

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 →

Photos taken at Black Gully Domain, Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. The next photo is a small crop from... Continue Reading →

Seen at Dusk

Springtime walk along the road at dusk tonight, East Roxburgh. Central Otago, New Zealand. Broom (a weed species) glowed gloriously gold in the late light. Pale blossom is hawthorn. Text and photos by Liz; Exploring Colour (2021)

White Gold

This south coast beach just south of Brighton near Dunedin / New Zealand gets golden sand sprinkled in patches, randomly over the mostly white sand. It's a very pretty effect. When we visited on Christmas morning there was way less gold sand than when we'd visited a few weeks before but I found a nice... Continue Reading →
