My four week winning streak with posting Wednesday Wallpapers on an actual Wednesday came to a grinding halt yesterday due to flaky internet service all day.  The frustration was well worth it though –  as van-loads of embattled Chorus technicians were hooking up the new fibre cabinet down the road – our rural ADSL speeds have more than doubled overnight!

Today’s image was made by Sarah during our caravan delivery trip, last school holidays and I am posting this as a ‘reminder-to-self’ that the world will keep turning when school breaks up tomorrow ;-)

See you next week!

Cheers – Todd

Wednesday Wallpaper | The Road to Mount Cook, Autumn

Aoraki / Mount Cook from Peter's Lookout in Autumn, Canterbury, South Island, New Zealand - stock photo, canvas, fine art print

Mount Cook and SH 80 to the Hermitage – from Peter’s lookout. New Zealand landscape photography by Sarah Sisson.

I really should post one of my images again soon, but I keep finding nice ones by Sarah during my travels through the archive.

The beauty of this image is that up-and-coming landscapers like @Beautox and @FredInTheGrass can’t replicate it – some wandering greeny task-force have bowled the infestation of wilding larches that give this scene its Nordic Autumnal vibe….

This stunning rainbow was captured by Sarah near the turnoff to Mount Cook Village several years ago. Such moments of natural beauty are all too rare (and fleeting).

Brrrrr….

The mornings are getting dark and chilly down this way – we are not too many weeks away from scenes like this appearing on my lawn (minus the 3,700m mountain peak and glacier fed river obviously).  Fortunately for me, this image was made by Sarah a couple of years ago, while I slept in my nice warm bed.

Here’s a question for the photographers amongst you.  At the time that this image was made we were shooting on both Canon and Nikon equipment – can you guess from the colours which brand this was made on?

Wednesday Wallpaper | Hamurana Springs, Lake Rotorua

Hamurana Springs - Rotorua, New Zealand

Source of Hamurana Springs, Lake Rotorua. New Zealand landscape photography by Sarah Sisson.

This is another image from our recent North Island adventures, this one is by Sarah – @fredinthegrass is hiding somewhere in the bush wrangling our kids out of shot :-)

Hamurana springs was one of my favourite finds on this trip. The crystal clear waters are on a par with pupu springs in Golden Bay with the addition of plentiful trout.  To boot, the bush walk along the stream is fantastic – thanks to the restoration planting undertaken by the local community and DOC.  A great family outing.

Have a great week.
