NZD 12162009

View from Watershed Road North Island

This is one of those fantasy pictures that I often can’t believe is real – but it is.  These are rolling green hills made dramatic by the shadows of clouds with the far mountains in the background.  If you want a bit of scale, look more closely at the white dots scattered about.  Most of those are sheep.  I love the drama of the shadows and the layers upon layers of hills.  We were rewarded for our trek off the paved road to be able to see this.image

I like that the photo looks like it was taken from a hot air balloon or something.

It also reminds me of a bag that Cindie at Eweniquely Ewe posted within the last month.

Very cool terrain!

Oh, Jennifer, this scene is BEGGING to become a tapestry! Wow, just think of all the green yarns & how much fun it would be selecting the right combinations & weaving it!!!

Although I haven't left a comment for you in awhile, I have to tell you I have thoroughly enjoyed all of your travels down under, & the fabulous images you've been posting. I even made my husband look at some of them, especially the little van you were traveling in! We hope to go there one days ourselves & you had some very great suggestions & ideas.

This is just beautiful, those green rolling hills stretching all the way to the horizon.
