September PODs

Today’s PODs are mainly from my trip to Nelson last weekend.My aim had been to try and find some landscape scenes worth photographing and though I did succeed to some extent I was rather distracted by other finds!

These two landscapes were taken near the top end of Neudorf Road.

These next two are composite photos, showing views through the broken windows, of ‘Wyperserfontein’, an abandoned house on Neudorf road near Upper Moutere, Nelson.

Another abandoned house a few km west of Richmond on Appleby Highway. This photo has been edited to remove some distracting features to the left of the house.

Finally one from Sumner beach near Shag Rock just after high tide. As the water retreated it left these patterns in the sand. The contrasts in colour and texture intrigued me and the lack of clues regarding scale was also intriguing.

Te Anau trip

I travelled down to Te Anau last week to visit a friend and see the sights. Sadly it rained most of the time I was there but I still managed to take a few photos (around  900 actually!).

The first of these photographs were taken on the trip down towards Queenstown before the bad weather hit me! The last photo was taken when I visited Bluff, it was actually sunny there but turned back to rain as I traveled back towards Te Anau. 🙁

Couldn’t resist this one. Rainbow (its actually a double rainbow but it doesn’t show too well in this photo) looking South over Foveaux Strait. The photo was taken from the top of Flagstaff Hill in Bluff. Stewart island is vaguely visible.
