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 →

Glistening Green

I was stunned to see this photo appear in my twitter feed recently, a Glistening-Green Tanager in the rain photographed in Ecuador Cloud Forest. I don't recall seeing photos of this bird before and I was amazed by the vibrant green plumage ~and it looks so beautiful sitting on the mossy branch in the rain!... Continue Reading →

Being a far distant observer I know little about what lies in her path but I've searched online and scanned for links on twitter, and I'll... Continue Reading →

The Southland District Council stopped maintaining that stretch of road. Some residents are angry about the Council response to the erosion problem. We visited Colac Bay on 09 January and I was...

My title's derived from the first photo which made me think of traffic lights, the way the colours graduate from red, to amber, and then a little more... 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 →

Go With The Flow

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 →

Branching Out

Trees looking lovely on a gorgeous winter afternoon. We'd walked out beyond the edge of town and up a road that runs through farms. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand. ~ photos taken today. Click on any photo to enlarge. I didn't bring my camera but asked Nigel to take these photos because the trees looked... Continue Reading →

One Tree Hill

Obvious title for a very eye-catching conical hill with a steep peak and a large tree perched right on top! ~viewed as we travelled from Moonlight to Middlemarch, Dunedin. Otago, New Zealand. Photos by Nigel. Actually, the first two photos were taken Sat 29 May 2021 as we made our homeward journey but the second... Continue Reading →
