I’ve just added a new series collection called “Floral” to the gallery. This series is mainly of macro studies. You can view them here.
My wife Sonya and I were down in Queenstown for a week celebrating our thirtieth wedding anniversary at the same time the #NZOpen was being played at the Millbrook and The Hills Golf Coarse. On finals day we decided to go too The Hills to watch some of the players and take in the spectacular views of The Hills Coarse. I also planned on taking photos of some of the amazing sculptures that are placed about the Hills coarse.
We arrive mid afternoon and made our way to the closest fairway to where we entered the coarse. Which was hole14. These two shots below are from the sculpture that sit above hole14.

This all stems from a visit to this cemetery a couple of years back. I’ve had these images etched in my head ever since that visit.
Shot this last Sunday.
On my way back home from Whitemans Valley I was driving along a winding stretch of road and as I looked down into the valley to my left, I saw these old dwellings with an old tractor sitting in the field. I was tempted to stop and jump the fence to photograph it but thought the better of it because it meant entering private property and I didn’t want to upset the owners or get prosecuted for trespass, so drove on thinking Bugger.
As I rounded the very next bend I came across this old woolshed which was part of, but apart from the same settlement. It grabbed my attention straight away with how close it was to the road side.
I liked how the old shed was nestled into the hillside stating its claim on the land, almost staunch like. And road in expectance to the woolsheds position has had to make its way around it.
When I look at it now, I can’t help but wander how many people have come round that bend and been surprised to see it there so close to roadside.
