Some time ago we went on a day trip to the area west of National Park. A very remote area, no vehicles, no cell phone coverage, and this fascinating rock formation intrigued me . Taken with my Canon Ixus.
A dear friend had some special hens, and their chickens.This one would not turn round.
Little chicks with different coloured feathers, mother hen was very protective, and tried to huddle them under her wide-spread feathers.
I think the Mum was called “ Mrs White Hen” and her chicks always thrived.A few golden patches, they were out in the sunshine for a little while, before going back to be snug in the covered part of the hutch, on a warm bed of hay, for the night.
Another stunning morning sky down south.Colours that changed every second.
The sky was darkening so fast, I took this through the windscreen, as the rain started to fall heavier. This is on the road back to Palmerston North. Not taken in B&W, just the natural colour as the stormy sky obliterated all above.
Quotation of the day, from Lord Byron
“ Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray”
