Monday Motivator – Blue Hut On SH8

November 4th, 2013 at 10:00 am by Richard Hume

Monday Motivator 1

Welcome to this new spot on Kiwiblog – your Monday Motivator – a landscape photograph usually in the panoramic format from New Zealand or overseas designed to bring you a little inspiration for the week ahead.

I thought I would start with a classic New Zealand scene taken on the road between Twizel and Lake Tekapo which has a certain element of ‘kiwiana’ about it. Very rarely does it occur that you happen to be driving by when all the elements (especially the light) for a photograph are present at that very moment. But that was the case with this image and after a quick u-turn and setting up the tripod in the middle of the highway I set about capturing what has become a very special photograph.

I hope you enjoy – you can download this photograph as a free Desktop Wallpaper HERE and please share with your friends.

Many thanks to David for adding me amongst the fine photographers on Kiwiblog.

Cheers Richard [richardhume.com]

    Great shot.

    Looks like the TARDIS’ chameleon circuit is now stuck on “1920’s beach changing shed” :)

    Okay, there isn’t a crescent moon cut into the door so it’s not what I thought it might be.

    I give up…..what is it? :)

    nasska – I don’t know what it is, but I heard it was used for an extraordinary National Party caucus once, in 2002 during the ‘Bill English’ period when the wrong sort of records were broken :-)

    I’m sorry but I don’t find this very motivational. I’d far rather be driving around the south island than working…

    Maybe,

    Member #000002 Redbaiter might have to angle his ‘spearhead’ a little to the left to make room for the Leader though…

    Just so long as his recent prophesy doesn’t bear fruit:

    ….” The change will come not from one Redbaiter but from millions. Already they are speaking out everywhere across the globe.”…..

    It could get a little claustrophobic even if the view is superb. :)

    That’s the start of Irishman’s Creek station, where Sir William Hamilton (inventor of the jet boat) grew up.
