remains of the tide
I love the marks that the ocean leaves on the sand as the tide goes out. It seems to me that it's a very slow 'Good by'.
wild, wee purples
I found this great flower growing in the thicket beside a river. I don't know what it is, but I thought it was interesting and different. It reminds me of a wild onion. Please let me know if you know what it is.

I've seen toetoe (pronounces toy toy) growing wild in many places but I've never seen these gorgeous, diverse colors before.
Toetoe is not pampas grass, although it's similar. Click here for an explanation.

why I take large pictures
I use the second largest setting on my camera for photos--which is 2592 x 1944. My camera takes great macro shots (20x), but I have the option of cropping to see more details.
steam at tokaanu thermal pools
The steaming hot water was blue and clear enough to see to the bottom of the outdoor pool. The steam from these underground hot springs is harnessed in the bath house at the other end of the property. And, it's sooo relaxing!
I think my 'rural' is a bit different that yours!

textured roadside scene
This is a typical scene to me, but I thought the texture added a good look.

a rare sight in NZ
This sight may be an ordinary fall view to you but here in New Zealand, it's quite rare. There are very few deciduous trees and we had to take a wrong turn to find this scenery which I consider 'typically fall'.

panorama at Taupo lookout
This is the first view you get of lake Taupo before you get to town. The clouds are always beautiful.

We have seen a few of these fences with shoes on them around the country. Miranda over at Gorgeous with Attitude has found other NZ fences, including one made of toothbrushes!

I took this shot last week on our little holiday and put an antique layer on it. I'm quite happy with the result.
