Beautiful Spring II : The Golden Hour

I love the way leaves glow in the afternoon light.

This is the same park where I found that mysterious spring tree. It’s truly a beautiful place and I hope to return soon with my photography camera.

Beautiful Spring

20171006_112224

Spring is here and it’s brought a rainstorm of blossoms with it. I’m loving the delicate colours and wild scents of this season.

As I was taking a stroll through the park a certain tree caught my eye. It was clear that I wasn’t alone in this – the tree was something of a magnet for spectators, tourists and selfie-snappers.

The blossoms remind me of cherry or plum blossoms, but I wasn’t aware that these grew in New Zealand. I’ve never seen cherries or plums before. But come to think of it, I’ve never seen these particular trees around before either.

Do you know what these beautiful spring trees are?

Let me know in the comments below.

WPC: The Texture of Water

I’ve always been fascinated by the texture of water. Well, I suppose the texture is always the same really, but things can look so different depending on the way the light hits it.

The above was taken while dolphin watching in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

The picture below was taken 3 hours from the Brisbane Coast, Australia. (And yes, the stuff that looks like shiny silver pebbles is actually pure ocean water).

WPC: Lantern Festival

Every year in Auckland we have a lantern festival to celebrate the Chinese New Year. For two nights the park lights up with lanterns of every shape and colour, and the night comes alive with music, dance, food and activities. These are some of my favourite lanterns.
