I recently have been away again, for work. I know, it's a hard job but someone has to do it. The best part (other than the wonderful people I meet at the places I visit) is the chance to get the camera out! This first photo looks quite bereft and sad, but as it was the start of my journey I wasn't feeling that way at all!
The trip took me up the east coast, where I stopped to wonder at the huge waves bullying their way to shore. This area of the Kaikoura Coast is 'awash' with baby seals at the moment but we didn't see any this day.
Then we had to turn inland, and hoorah for snow eh?
Past the snow, at a wee "blink and you miss it" place, was this beauty. A purple Morris, how cool are those mag wheels??
I found this ol' faller-downer just outside the above Blink n Miss It. Anyone fancy a working bee with the paint brush and a few curtains??
Upon reflection (gag) maybe not, however this Mountain puddle reflection I quite liked. It was very cold taking this photo.
The cold was worth it, even tho' it was -3 the following morning the day blossomed into a wonderful serene day. This photo is taken overlooking the mountain range and river near Hanmer.
The adventurous amongst you may want to consider doing a bungy jump from this bridge, see the nice red sprint boat waiting at the bottom? Note the log truck going over the bridge? Yep, too high for this particular chicken.
But then, imagine my delight at finding this wee fella just in time for a cuppa tea? I thought of Owen over at the Magic Lantern Show and felt for sure he would love to put this part of the world on his "to do" list!
