    Yet another study in Paringa blues

    Blue sky and blue shadows, the mountains as thrown fabric -
    “Somewhere in a blanketfold of the land/Lies the golden strand.” (Dennis Glover, ‘Arawata Bill’)
    Oddly enough as soon as I thought this, an image of Dennis Glover looked back at me from the top of one of those kahikatea trees.

    Blue sky and blue shadows, reflected in two sets of smooth ripples paralleling those blanketfold shadows.

    Restore them together as one scene linked by doubled bands of kahikatea forest to lake-edge ecotone, in light and shade - more to it than the average chocolate box :-)

    Lake at Bethells on a full moon night

    Hey! I recognise those navigational stars. And the lake – Wainamu. Follow the stars just over the ridge to the right and another lake is hidden there – Kawaupaka –

    so secret, it’s not shown on the map.

    Big blue skies last winter up the side of Mt Ruapehu, looking towards Ngauruhoe and Tongariro.

    Nice! Love the sun's 6 prong breakup. It's almost like a star of Bethlehem.

    I'd never have been able to catch the kingfisher if it was moving...

    I have wasted hours trying to get a good shot of them on the wing. Haven't done it yet. Lots of shots of wings and beaks entering or leaving frame. Ditto for Swallows.

    Tried to get a fantail dancing in front of me last weekend. Hopeless. But I did get an impressionistic picture of a tree that is now my iPhone wallpaper.

    Some of my blurred bird pics (and yes that also includes fantails) are quite artistic. I tend not to delete them because they have a certain something. If only they looked that way on purpose I'd be quite proud of them.

    I'm always happy with those shots... Jackson.... another thread "It was meant to look like that..." : )

    Well now that I've gone and had a look at a bunch of my attempts to get fantails on the wing down at Hatape last winter, I discover this shot I didn't even know I had, which appears to show a fantail just a split second away from swallowing an insect. Cool.

    That top one looks sort of Old Master painterly.
