WPC: Early Morning Magic


Good morning from a sunny Hastings day.

Just a quick post this morning as I have another market to go to today.  We are now trying to get back to normality here in New Zealand.  Hastings, where I live, is back to normal.  We had a couple of days with stormy winds but got through that ok.

Wellington is still badly affected with many buildings off limits due to danger of collapse. Kaikoura is slowly getting more supplies in and trapped tourists out.  We are a hardy bunch here in New Zealand.

Again thanks for all your kind messages.

This week  wants to see magical images.  When I was searching through my archives I came across this folder, aptly called ‘Early Morning Magic’.  So I have edited them for a more ethereal feel to them.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Manuwatu Gorge Railway


Good morning from a cool and windy Hastings day.

Firstly an update on our earthquake news.  Over the week, with more building inspections, more Wellingtonians are being evacuated.  It is hard to keep up with all the latest developments.  Plus there are predictions of more quakes to come and there is a high risk of landslides around Kaikoura in the South Island.  I am ok here in Hastings.

Our landscape has changed too –

Changing landscape

So speaking of landscapes.  My two images for Cee’s black and white challenge were taken from the car driving through the Manuwatu Gorge last Saturday.  On one side of the river the railroad follows the hillside, while the road is on the other side.


As you can see.
