Holidaying down in Wanaka this week. The best week of the year… It’s been most gloomy and rainy… and the weather service is promising snow tomorrow! Could I be more happy? This tree is 5-6 metres out in the lake. I photograph it every year – this might be the ultimate shot. What do youContinue reading “Wanaka’s Famous Tree”
Yeah, yeah… but is what they do and what they were doing. I am especially fond of the bull in the hole. I’m sure there’s a twisted cliche in there – but one is probably enough for tonight…
Had the opportunity to photograph the Auckland Town Hall organ this past weekent. This was my favourite bit. Full frontal view!

…. that keeps on giving.
You don’t have to be a horse lovely to see the beauty in this mare… What elegance.
Went to the KareKare Beach Races on Saturday – horse racing on the beach. A refreshing change from the usual street fair and I got to meet some interesting characters. Loved these two ponies…
Rather like this shot of the bumper cars from the other night. Not quite as fond of this one, but strangely, quite a few people loved it – so I thought I’d share it here… see if anyone else likes it. Hmmm… sorry for sounding grumpy… just didn’t get what I was expecting. And likeContinue reading “Bumper car”
