A Moment of both Peril and Promise

Jan 6th, Capitol. "That day, and our response to it, contain potential for both peril and promise." [final paragraph] “This is indeed a moment of both peril and promise. But if love is indeed the supreme law of God for life, as I believe it is, then God’s way of unselfish, sacrificial love for each... Continue Reading →

White Christmas

I found myself with a few local 'white' Christmas photos after a wander around town. These were all taken on Boxing Day except for the white ducks and the pigeons - I took those on Christmas Day. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

Nice and White

Spring flowers blooming nice and white, found on my birthday trip into Central Otago on 31 October. Garden-whites and Wild-whites. New Zealand.

Wild Bright Blooms

These photos of beloved Central Otago wildflowers were taken on my birthday trip on 31 October (spring in New Zealand). We'd stopped on the roadside near Cromwell to take a closer look at them.

Roxburgh Cottage

Cute cottage we found on our 2nd-to-last visit to Roxburgh. On Saturday we had another look and the tamarisk tree was now in flower as well as the wisteria so I decided to take photos. Central Otago, New Zealand.

White Flowerfall

Waterfalls..why not flowerfalls? I spotted this lovely white dogwood (Cornus sp.) down a side-street in Roxburgh on Saturday. After a refreshment stop we found the tree and I tried to capture something of its magic. The white dogwoods are pure white, noticeably standing out from other white blossom. Roxburgh, Central Otago. New Zealand. Click on... Continue Reading →
