May 13, 2015 … in pastoral landscapes

A gap in the weather encouraged me to head out.


Pastoral landscape at Pauatahanui

I went first to Pauatahanui, but couldn’t stay long enough for birds, so settled for a landscape. I suspect this area is to wet and too steep for cows though there are some around. None in this view though.


House on the hill

From there I went back towards the Paekakariki Hill Road, stopping to contemplate the contrast between the rushes in the swamp and the interesting hillside and the prominent house near the top. As the clouds behind suggest, the rain is ready to resume at any moment.

Stock yards

At Battle Hill Farm. I was deterred from serious exploration by the return of the rain, so grabbed a shot of the mustering yards and related buildings before things got out of hand.

That’s all for today.


About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
