Hello all and welcome to for 22 August.

This week we head up the road from our home to Wedderburn for some snowy ovine action.  We have seen precious little snow around Central Otago this winter, so I presume that will translate to never ending rain during barbecue season - or  biblical grade droughts.

Speaking of the bible, there is one Hell of a ‘discussion’ flaring up on today’s General Debate  on the topic of  creationism in schools….too heated for this artistically inclined fruitcake.

See you next week!

Cheers – Todd

    Your snarky comment on the Bishop getting caught out July 4 could be taken as pointing in a particular direction.

    Fruitcake? Are you unwell?

    @kowtow – that qualified as ‘snarky’?

    But yes, I guess it might provide some indication of my biases…. small site eh!

    No I’m feeling rather chipper – just a little more fruit-filled than usual :-)

    I’m sure Johnboy will appreciate the ‘artistic merit’ of the subject matter…. :D

    Late afternoon sun, looks like the day after it snowed. The hillshapes change with the shadows. Very picturesque and serene there.

    Coming down your way in a week or three.
    Please organise some snow for us.
    I have heard of snow-fed streams, Todd,
    but this shot looks like snow-fed sheep.

    Facinating collection of pairs … numerous ‘pairs’ of sheep in the foreground and further back and a pair of shadows on the hills.
