The Colourful Buildings of Burano, Venice

Canon 7D, 18-55mm Lens

 Walking around the Island of Burano, Venice, late afternoon. The buildings and canals were beautiful colours. I have even gone so far as looking at house prices there - what a great place it would be to live! There would be no end of photographic opportunities!

The Old Fridge

Canon 7D, 10-22mm Lens. 3 shot HDR

This abandoned building still had old wallpaper from years ago - the one with the sacking backing. All peeling. Old Floors, mess, broken toilet, old oven, it was a photographers dream! So we took advantage of it for a few hours.

Petrified Forest, Uncovered for First Time

Canon 7D, 10-22mm Lens

I lived in Auckland, 3km from this beach for 40 years. For the very first time, low tide uncovered this Petrified Forest and volcanic ash/mud on Takapuna Beach. Once this forest went from here through to Great Barrier Island, but Rangitoto put paid to that when it erupted - approximately 600 years ago. The volcano has been dormant since, and can be seen here in the distance. It's one of Auckland's Icons, and a view that is missed now I live in the South Island. A stunning winters day, and I even got a photo of someone sunbathing in a Bikini.

Autumn Vineyards

Found this yesterday - had been sitting on my computer... alone and forgotten. Much like me really!! Took this in Autumn last year at the Brancott Valley Estate on one of Marlborough's warm blue sky days. I love the view, the colours, the lines and the shadows. One of my favourite places to visit - they not only have great wine, but their coffee is to die for too!

The Weta

The Weta - one of New Zealands sexiest native insects. Most people scream and run for the hills, but I find them fascinating as they are so ugly.
