Landscapes

Okay, seriously, Spring must be here!

Skunk Cabbage

Not everyone likes skunk cabbage, but you have to admit they do brighten up an otherwise drab swamp in the spring.  Look at those bright yellow flowers and the huge leaves. I’d even go as far as to say they’re exotic!


For Eternity

For Eternity

I don’t know who took the time to carve this into the log, I suppose it really doesn’t matter to anyone except for the two people it is meant. 

Was it love at first sight? A promise to be together?  A proposal? Who knows. 

Whatever their story, we can make up our own.


Swimmer

SwimmerOne of my favourite places to photograph  on the north island is the Cluxewe River estuary.

Usually I see swans, Canada geese and a variety of ducks. however, on this trip I saw this deer paddling down the river.


Frosted Fire

Frosted FireI love clear cold winter days!

The morning sun back lighting the fern fronds made them look like flames jumping out of the “blue”


Frosted Gold

Frosted GoldI was driving the logging road that parallels the highway near the Cluxewe River and came upon this beautiful scene.

The banks of this creek were thick with frost which  accentuated the morning sun reflecting on the water.
