OUR WORLD - more from my NZ trip

A rare sandstone outcrop
a high-rise for many birds
and home to ancient petroglyphs

there is such a lot of wisdom in this sign
if you read the fine print

unfortunately, as in many places.
sacred sites and ancient petroglyphs
have given way to graffiti
and senseless destruction

happily, at least now, it is securely fenced off

SkyWatch - The Land of the Long White Cloud

Summer clouds in New Zealand

I'd love to go back to the Land of the Long White Cloud
where so much goes on in the sky

SkyWatch - watching the day fade

After a long day's drive across New Zealand's
South Island,
we found this splendid hotel in Wanaka
with views across the lake and the snow-capped mountains

with the statutory G&T in hand
we watched the last rays of the sun 
catching the mountain tops

darn it, it's hard to take photos with my phone
while hanging on to my gin with the other hand
and leaning over the balcony 
 trying to photograph around the corner

happily I stayed safe after all and
was able to enjoy the pink clouds
reflecte in the lake
and my G&T
