WPC – Victory

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Victory.”

I really was not sure what image to use for this week’s challenge. I have had so many small and big victories this last year, I wasn’t sure which one to focus on. So I thought I would take a few Victories from a big one earlier in the year. After many years of nagging (yes nagging) Moth finally relented into an overseas Holiday……….it was only to new Zealand, but it still required a passport! Once I got over my peeves about it not being Italy, or Istanbul or somewhere equally fascinating I got quite excited. First thing I wanted to do was Hobbiton…….we are both LOTR fans so NZ was a great spot for us actually. So here we are at Hobbiton.Picnic DinnerMy next challenge and it was a huge challenge was climbing Mount Sunday. I’m sure you can tell by the photos, I am not very athletic lol. This was my Everest, damn near killed me, but I made it to the top.

This next small victory was in Christchurch Gardens, I had a fascination with NZ bumblebees, we don’t have them in Australia, so I wanted to get a photo. I was still quite new, quite raw with photography back then, I think I took hundreds of photos to get just a couple of really good ones. I love this one, it is still slightly blurry, but I got rule of thirds, a lovely bokeh and not one but four bumblebees! Go ME!!!
