The Lens-Artist’s final challenge for 2019 is to look back at the year in images.
We’re off the grid but there are 2 sets of power lines crossing our place. Ironic. This pylon is across the road from our gate. In January, an early storm darkened the western sky as the sun rose in the east, highlighting the freshly painted steel structure.
In February this cow posed artistically under the pylon.
My gerberas looked their best in March.
The low light of autumn on the Central Plateau brightened this line of pylons as they delivered power to the upper North Island.
In May, autumn winds blew leaves off the trees to carpet the ground.
Red hot poker, knifophia brightened up the beginning of winter.
The camellias couldn’t tell the difference between winter and spring and in July started to show their colours.
In August, we welcomed 6 new kokako to our part of the world. NEWS FLASH!!! Kara, and Ponga are nesting – she is sitting on eggs. 🙂
In September, we had an adventure in Canada and Alaska.
Spring made an early appearance in October.
November’s fine weather bought out a bunch of Mini enthusiasts.
December skies were stormy and tragedy took the gloss off the holiday season. But baby birds still needed feeding and their mothers ran themselves ragged keeping up.
These are a few of the photos that made up 2019.
Many thanks to Patti, Tina, Amy and Ann-Christine for the challenges that keep us practicing and improving our photography. I can’t wait till 2020’s challenges are underway. Happy new year everyone.
