I just found this draft in my folder from September 16th – long time ago, but might as well publish it – you may have seen some of these pics before though. 🙂
Originally I had set out to do the weekly photo challenge Near and Far. Though I got heaps of nice shots, I don’t think any are really “near and far”! But here they are anyway.
Kowhai tree had beautiful yellow flowers all over it.
I love the yellow against blue.
Kowhai are native to New Zealand and attract tui, which are beautiful birds with dark iridescent feathers – I didn’t see any today, they are mostly around in winter for some reason. I wouldn’t know why though.
One of the last photos before the camera finally died. The lights along the gutter were turned on, very nice touch for a photographer 🙂 The ‘rain’ here, I believe was actually coming from the gutter, but I can’t be sure. It produced a nice effect anyway.
