Hugh has been out on a lovely winter’s day, and these come from his camera.
The St Bartholomew’s Anglican Church at Komako, on the Pohangina Valley East Road, was established in 1926 with money donated by Mr and Mrs Handley, who then farmed at Springvale . The money came from the income from one season’s wool clipping. This area was once a thriving community , with a sawmill, store and post office. Did the Sunday parishioners come on horseback, in horse and cart, or maybe some of them had a car.I’m sure there were many happy and some sad services held there.
He started the day with this photo of a beautiful sunrise near Colyton, at 7.30 a.m.
Raumai Bridge over the Pohangina River, not much water now, Were Hugh’s thoughts similar to those of William Wordsworth when he wrote these lines
“Composed upon Westminster Bridge.”, 1807
“Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty”
Hidden in the leaves of this huge Totara Tree is a wood pigeon, finding wonderful camouflage in the greenery.
Quotation of the day, Anonymous
The perspective of some creditors is , that in their view,
insolvency is a hatch,catch and dispatch process.
