The tree on the hill…

This image was made at the top of the Minden on a showery day with many passing dumps of wet. The sun just shone a ray of light behind and the whisper of cloud above added a contrast as well.

As with many isolated tree shots its usually one by itself as if its standing against the world and all that it can throw at it. A champion of survival perhaps…

 

Rare white tui…

Rare white tui…

Its a very lucky person to be able to see one of these very rare birds in their environment. A good luck bringer methinks…

There is apparently about 2 or 3 sightings per year and usually from the Bay of Plenty. That makes this bird so rare its extraordinary to be able to see one.

I count myself very lucky to have been able to get a image of this bird as it was very camera shy and with camera systems using a contrast system to focus the white on grey added another dimension.

The reaction on my Facebook page has been just extraordinary. Nice to be able to share a rare thing around to enliven everybodys day…

Prints will be  available soon with-out the watermark but we envisage only doing framed fine art prints only, no canvas prints at all for this image at this stage.

Tokakahakaha Island…

Tokakahakaha Island…

This spot to have to yourself is just magic. The trail to get in is from Onemana beach at the carpark on top of the hill at southern end of the village. Its a bit rough and tough…not the usual easy trek at all but worth it. About 4kms in… allow the day for in and out.

On the way you pass two other beaches to stop at so plenty of good choices if ya wanna escape the crowds as most people won’t do a treck.

Happy wandering.

As usual this image is available as a canvas print delivered to your door ready to hang. The watermarks are removed…
