It’s a much welcome bright day here in Derbyshire, one in which I shall try and in gather all the lumens I can. You never know how long it might be before the next sunny day.
Here are some some sunny blue sky photos from our New Zealand trip (November 2019), with complementary flash of orange for added zing.
A walk by the Clutha river, at Albert Town, nr Wanaka. Look, lupins, Tom had promised me there would be lupins ( a photogenic but invasive bloom, but more of that later).
Aren’t these poppies delicious
There was a cloud in the blue sky, but what a handsome cloud. I think it is a Lenticularis cloud, but you’d probably have to ask The Cloud Appreciation Society for a definitive answer.
And if this wasn’t tasty enough we followed up with lunch at Pembroke Patisserie, I don’t know which herb or spice they season their spinach and feta rolls with, but it make them sing. So much so we had to go back again another day.
Tom tells me how grim the weather has been over Wanaka, with the smoke clouds from Australia. It’s hard to imagine the scale of the Australian bush fires, but to put a little perspective on it, Sydney to New Zealand is a three hour flight (NZ is not quite ‘next door’ to Australia as we Poms are sometimes guilty of thinking). You are in our thoughts Australia.
