A gap in the weather encouraged me to head out.
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.
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.
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.
