The mists of autumn...

On Easter Monday I left at 5am for Oamarama to meet my cousin Deirdre and Murray who had been at the 100 yr Otematata Station centennial. The idea of the early start was to catch the sunrise somewhere nice. It turned out to be at Ben Avon Station up the Ahuriri River valley.

the first rays of the sun on the land...

fences always make a nice subject - I'm so grateful farmers build them so straight and true [thanks Jim]...

an hour later I suppose and it's "all over rover", but now the colours of the damp areas contrasting with the dry captivate me...

Deirdre and Murray posted a "in memory of .." on their blog today - their daughter Sandra... there is nothing I can say except publish the link in her honour... http://www.culverden.co.nz/news/

Today saw the beginning of Dougal's soccer season - last year every soccer Sunday in Wanaka, Queenstown, Cromwell and Alexandra was perfect weather like this. He's hoping the 2008 season follows the trend:

Thanks Donald-as Jim would say "your blood is worth bottling"
Great photos of Ben Avon.
I think Dougal has grown another few inches!!!
