Central Otago

Sorry to have been out of touch for the last few days but I have been in Central Otago and way out of range of a computer connection. No mobile connection either.

Completely different to any other part of New Zealand, some of it is arid and rocky, cold in winter and hot in summer. Westerns could easily be filmed there.

Gold mining was one of the main activities and here is a view of some miners huts that have been preserved. I’m always intrigued by subjects that somehow get lost in the background. At Cape Foulwind some years ago from a high vantage point I tried to photograph seals lying on rocks. They were remarkably well disguised and it took several minutes to identify just how many there were there.
