A summer's morning and all is still on a Farm in the Far North of  New Zealand. The buoys in the foreground and the fog in the background hint that the coast is not far away.

Jen and I are continuing to enjoy being new parents. What a difference a year makes. This picture we posted today is taken from February 2015. We were visiting David's family in the Far North of New Zealand when we stopped on the roadside one morning to take this shot of Herekino. We love the fact that this photo is not quite the stereotypical photo of a New Zealand summer or the Far North.

This shot is a little different to our usual landscapes. Taken on the Hammond Family farm in the Far North of New Zealand, it goes to show that farm gates are more that just devices for keeping animals in.

Here is our (Jennifer + David) shadow on a 4 wheeler or quad bike and David's dad and dog Mack shifting cattle from one paddock to another.  The farm is world's away from our life in Wellington but oh, how we love getting out there and just breathing in the fresh air and taking in the expansiveness of it all.... and helping out with the chores when we can!

Thi's picture was taken on the coast between the Herekino and Whangape harbors/harbours in the Far North of New Zealand.

We took this shot on our recent trip to the South Island in Central Otago. The water you see in the foreground is not a pond or a lake, it is a depression in the ground, where the water has collected during winter.   This is why we can see the rushes in the water. The water would be no more than a few inches deep and will dry out and return to farm land very quickly. But for us it makes a nice photo.

This is one of the photos we are considering for our 2016 calendars.  This piece of coastline lies between the Herekino and Whangape Harbours/Harbors.  The building in the distance is a bach or beach house, but it is not a beach house with connotations of luxury; no electricity, no phones, no mobile phones, no television and no internet.  We love how the tiny building showcases the isolation and wide open spaces of this piece of New Zealand coastline.

The scenery in Central Otago was amazing. But this shot is a reminder that for all its beauty it is very much a working environment and that come rain or shine animals still need to be feed. It is at the same a beautiful place and a harsh environment where drought conditions and beautiful winter scenes combine. Don't be fooled, it requires special people to farm here.

This picture of shorn sheep was taken on the #OtagoPeninsula over looking the Otago Harbour/Harbor. It's a shot we are considering for our calendar. Early mornings do have their rewards!

This is the second photo we posted that was taken just after the Hore road turn off in the Maniototo. It's one of two very similar photos we are posting. It's got the hay in more detail compared with the other photo. Let us know which one you think is best.
