Just for fun – Rain Refraction

Last post I told you all about the weekends photographic challenges my group was doing. Most have been fun…not so much this latest one. Hard on the back, knees and eyes. So we got a sheet of glass (we took the image out of a frame), cleaned it and treat it with rain repellant, then…

TeAnau – Milford Sound – Day 13 – Re Post

We had so many highlights to this trip, it really is hard to say which was the best, but Milford Sound and getting there had to be ranked in amongst it! It was very cold again last night, with more fresh snow on the Alps, there was a truly beautiful, amazing sunrise turning them soft…

Queenstown – TeAnau – Day 12 – Re-Post

Considering it was February – Summer- it was so very cold, I mean COLD. We were not really prepared for it to be freezing and snow. We managed to pick up woolen hats and scarves and we wore so many layers of clothes. But it was such a beautiful part of the world. It got…

Wanaka – Day 9 – Re-Post

We had such horrid weather while in Wanaka, but it did make for greatg waterfalls! The B&B that we stayed at is a Hobbit Style recreation villa, very cute but not very usable to be honest, over sized furniture in a very small room and the doors were oval (all the way round) which made…

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 13

We woke up early grabbed a coffee and headed out, really not much to do in this part of the world, headed over to Palmerston North to see The Old Brickworks, pretty uninspiring after the Cement Works the other week. Stopped at Opiki Toll Bridge (or what is left of it). So we continued onto…

Tuesday’s Textures

I spent most of last week feeling miserable and trying to sit and concentrate on anything was difficult, so I took this image (Lake Taupo, NZ) and just played with it, I adored the Monotone image, the calmness of the water and I simply made it a little more painterly. ~ Julz, xo

Our New Zealand Adventure – Day 11

Due to complete exhaustion from the previous day or so we had a bit of a sleep in (I think I slept something like 11 hours!) and left Rotorua for Taupo. We briefly stopped at Huka Falls, honestly not very pretty there was a LOT of water going over, but brown and muddy and did…
