I feel like a bit of a broken record player at the moment.. buuuut Perspective. Three men were laying bricks for a cathedral. When asked what they were doing the first said he was laying bricks. The second responded by saying that he was building a brick wall. Yet the third turned around announced that he was building a cathedral! You see anyone can scrub a toilet or sweep a kitchen floor with a bad attitude. But it takes a shift in perspective to do the things that normally would be a pain in the butt and to do them full of joy.
I went for a little wander in @christchurchnz. I found myself in Selwyn and up a river on a beautifully hot day. While the river was drying up, there was still enough romanceof water to tell the days story.
There's something unique using focal length and getting a horizon into your shot. Its something the human eye doesnt see!
There are so many amazing short walks in New Zealand - how to pick the best ones? I’ve got a new blog post up (link in my Stories) with 14 of my favorites that are guaranteed to blow you away ✌🏻 what’s your fave? Mine might be Lake Matheson on the West Coast, have you been? @docgovtnz
I came upon this wonderful kea friend high atop the Lake Hauroko lookout track. Their intention was to distract me while a friend made an attempt to gain access to my backpack. Fortunately I was able to prevent a hiking pole theft 😉
This hike was reasonably challenging, but the view was definitely worth the effort. I also noticed quite a few native birds after reaching the lookout. The sandflies were quite thick near the lake, with far less on the trail up, and at the top.
Fun fact - Lake Hauroko is the deepest lake in New Zealand, and is part of Fiordland National Park.
This picture is symbolic for us, apart from the fact that it reminds us one of our most beautiful sunset in the South Island, it is also this picture that we had chosen to represent our exhibition at @mairangiarts last December. This beach is one of many that you can cross on the west coast road of the South Island, between Punakaiki and Greymouth.
Cette photo est symbolique pour nous, en dehors du fait qu’elle nous rappelle le souvenir d’un de nos plus beau coucher de soleil dans l’île du sud, c’est aussi cette photo que nous avions choisi pour représenter notre exposition à @mairangiarts au mois de décembre dernier. Cette plage fait parti des nombreuses que vous pouvez croisez sur la route de la côte ouest de l’île du sud, entre Punakaiki et Greymouth.
Huge thanks to @gravitynelsonnz and John for being such a great driver and a wealth of knowledge on the tracks he dropped us into. Another Big day shuttling after 2 days at Gorge hitting Matai/Supplejack, Putakari, Te Ara Koa, Fringe DH, Black Diamond-Sunshine Ridge-Peaking Ridge.
