Sunday Stills: Rivers and Creeks

Down at the River (2 of 1)

This week Ed from Sunday Stills has asked us for our photos of creeks and rivers.

Last week after Cyclone Pam’s heavy rain I headed down to Ngaruroro River which starts in the Ruahine Forest Park and Kaweka  ranges to the west of us. (I hope I got that right)

I was hoping to see some high waters as when we have a lot of rain but by the time I got down there the waters had receded quite a lot.

This runs down to the sea along the East coast just south of Napier.

Thanks for visiting.



Phoneography Challenge: All creatures great and small.


Good morning from a cool Hastings day.

For this week’s challenge for Sally’s challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally it is the challengers choice.  So I have gone for both small as in this insect to birds in the sky at Port Ahuriri


This was the most successful of my attempts to take photos of seagulls in flight.


Then there is Abbey and…

Everyone will have to wait for any photos of me going horse riding.  We just worked with ponies yesterday and learnt how to care for them.  I did take a couple of photos but was limited as only one person gave their permission to take their photos.  It was fun and the weather was great for us.  Thank goodness.
