Last night there was a sound, I thought the fridge was packing up, for a few seconds, then realised it was raindrops on the roof. Yes, for maybe a minute, we had rain. The bright red Salvia plants enjoyed it so much, they are even brighter today.
At Piropiro, Hugh went out many times to explore new tracks. There are so many old trees there, lichen hanging off the trunks, fallen logs to crawl over.
Here are some of his photos, taken with his Canon G9.
Lichen on an old tree trunk
The well used fireplace, providing wonderful heat on a frosty morning
A grassy part of the track In the foreground is the box on his quad, with tools, spare parts, and emergency equipment. The Gopro Video camera has its own special place there too.But not this time.
Tangled branches and tree trunks everywhere.
This is the pool at the bottom of the steps, water from a stream gushes out of a huge pipe that goes under the metal road, very cold and crystal clear, but hard to get a good photo as it is surrounded by ferns and grasses.Too dark, too light, too sunny, no matter what time I wandered down there, it didn’t seem to be any better.
Tonight the night sky was glorious, tempting me with those few minutes of beauty.Do you get tired of sky photos? I could look at them every day, and marvel at how the sky looks in other parts of the world.
Quotation of the day from Gerald De Nerval,
“Each flower is a soul opening out to nature”
