Apples

These very small and very scruffy apples came from a roadside tree, I’d picked them hoping they’d be sour as I had intended making a savoury chilli jelly,  I discovered however that  they’re sweet with very tough skins….definitely not for eating but they made good jelly. I liked how they looked in front of my […]


A little late lunch

Hanmer springs is a lovely alpine village famed for its beautiful natural hot springs, it also has some great tracks to walk and cycle. I spotted this guy -a mule if I’m not mistaken, when we were out for a walk. He wasn’t going to stop eating for anything, or come any closer. Almost forgot! […]


Power Line

Another one of my “out the car window”  shots where I’ve had to do a little “cleaning” of the pesky fence posts that appeared in the raw image  -what would we do without photoshop 🙂 This was taken in the early evening light on our way home from visiting family in Central Otago over Easter. […]


sweet peas

These sweet peas were growing over a neighbours fence and I appropriated a few flowers on my way past for photographic purposes. *notes to self to remember to plant some seeds next year*. Processed as follows: Curves layer to adjust the contrast Archival canvas @ multiply 67% Shargreen Bone @ soft light 100% Apple Blush […]


Ent

I don’t think any photographer could have resisted this strangely shaped tree  spotted growing on a river bank one evening. It’s actually a tree being smothered by a vine or creeper of some description and although you can’t really tell from the photo stands at least 4 metres tall. Such vine covered trees are common […]


Fresh

Another day, another daisy:-)  These little flowers grow like weeds here, in cracks in the path for example. I forgive them their weedy tendencies and especially love the way that each plant has flowers of several different colours. This was processed quickly and easily with two textures from Pack 2 Peach Blush @ Overlay 100% […]


One!

This wonderful tree sits in the middle of farmland high in the South Otago hills.  From the first time I saw it 3 or so years ago I loved it and now I try and stop each time we go past. My aim is to take a photo from the paddock itself (this was taken […]


Hope

This is the tiny flower of Herb Robert or Geranium robertianum, it grows like a weed in my garden but thankfully it doesn’t have much in the way of roots so is easy to pull out. When crushed it has a very pungent smell; the books say like foxes but never having smelled or seen […]


Deer Farm

Farmed deer are a common site here in New Zealand, in the 80’s when farmers were struggling many of them diversified and started farming deer. I love seeing them in their paddocks…the little white-tail deer are my favourites. I think these are probably red deer and I also think there may be fauns hiding there […]


The return..

Two years ago just a few hundred metres from this tree I slipped down a tiny grassy slope and broke my ankle. The place is now known as “The Broken Leg Place” and I always tread carefully when I’m there -the pain still being vivid in my mind! There are no houses there now but […]


Christmas Roses

It’s Christmas eve here in New Zealand and my Christmas preparations are largely complete thank goodness!! In some ways I envy you northern hemisphere people your winter Christmas celebrations. As well as preparing for Christmas we have to cope with organising summer holidays as most people take their annual leave after Christmas, the end of […]
