Weekly Wallpaper | Evening Light Southern Alps, Rangitata Valley

Spectacular sunset light, Southern Alps. Road to Mesopotamia Station, Rangitata Valley. Canterbury NZ

Evening light near Mesopotamia station, Rangitata Valley Canterbury.

Did you see how I did that?  Adjusting this week’s post title to ‘Weekly’ in order to deftly wallpaper over my Wednesday tardiness, all the while retaining my beloved ‘W’ alliteration….

This image was made many moons ago and I have had a bit of fun playing in Adobe Lightroom to enhance the drama in the scene.

Thanks to Davidinnz for pointing out that I was directing you to our website development site over the past few weeks – I have moved a pile of wallpapers to the correct gallery now – sorry about that!

    Alone we are born, and die alone
    Yet see the red-gold cirrus over snow-mountain shine
    Upon the upland road ride easy stranger:
    Surrender to the sky your heart of anger

    That is some beautiful word-smithery RRM. The man’s pen was a paint brush.

    And get some bloody windmills up there pronto

    The station may be down to 1/3 its original size, but the family have kept the best views.
    A stunning region to visit, beautifully captured with this image Todd.
    Bit dusty in the caravan!! but just might have to “bite the Dust”!
