Surprising Finds after Cyclone Debbie

 

Last week New Zealand got the tail end of Cyclone Debbie, after it had hit Queensland. The day after the rain stopped I went out to discover the damage.  I was surprised by the weather – perfect blue skies and no wind.  The water had started to recede quite a bit but there were pockets of water around which showed up some fantastic reflections.

We are now into autumn and the light was perfect.

Now New Zealand is bracing itself for another cyclone – Cook.  This time we have been told that it is a massive storm which you can read about here.  So far, where I live we are not too bad.

So to all the New Zealand bloggers – keep dry and safe.

WPC: Last of the Green Leaves

Good morning from Hastings. Yes I am back. But I will be rather erratic for the next few weeks. My computer officially died – the autopsy showed that the motherboard had passed away.  So my son built me a desktop – cheaper, and also when something dies, the parts is easier to replace.

As you can see from my title of this post, I am moving.  I have managed to find a very cute little cottage to rent down in Otane. Everything is brand new inside, with a new garage as well.  I move in a month, so will be busy packing and sorting out my stuff.  My son is moving out to go flatting with some mates.

So I am walking around Hastings taking some last photos.  Actually last photos of green leaves as we are heading into autumn.
