Nestled in the heart of the Catlins, South Island, the Purakanui Falls are only a short walk from the road. This day I was fascinated by the foreground light and snapped the scene. The photo says it all. Enjoy!

For over 60 years I have been going up to Arthurs Pass for climbing, tramping and mountain hut building trips. This is the view taken on SH73 near the top of the hill overlooking Grasmere Station and the Cass Valley. This particular morning the cloud in the valley was in just the right place to capture the gap in the trees and have the magnificent background of the snowy Polar Range mountains in the Arthurs Pass National Park.

Ever since I first visited the Routeburn valley in 1958, it has been an attraction for me. This lovely bush setting was taken on the track into Lake Sylvan during a visit in 2015. I love the foreground with the logs and mosses. Truly give you the feeling you are “in the bush”. The Routeburn Valley was where I started tramping and hunting. It is a must visit valley for New Zealanders.

There is something magical about Glenorchy and I have been lucky to have friends there and as well, another good reason to visit at least once or twice each year. The road to Paradise is a delightful drive at least on a fine day. This photograph was snapped from the passenger seat of a 4WD vehicle and remarkably captures the beautiful stand of beech. Surely it is, “Paradise Road”.

Lake Wanaka is a special place and when in Wanaka, Bremner Bay is a spot that I always go to early in the morning to capture the light and the reflections of the mountains. In 1977 I was the President of the Canterbury Mountaineering Club and that year an expedition went to Tierra del Fuego in Chile to climb Cerro Egger, a sheer rock climb next to the infamous Cerro Fitzroy. Unfortunately a member of the expedition, Phil Herron died in an accident on the mountain. Right at this spot is a memorial seat for Phil and this is the view. A fitting place for him to be remembered.

I have a kowhai tree in my driveway. Most of the time it drops leaves and seeds onto my car but when it flowers it is beautiful. So I share this with you.

The Hopkins valley is just south of Aoraki Mt Cook National Park. I was fortunate to visit the valley in March 2017. This is one photograph I took while having a lunch stop during a tramp. It looks superb on the canvas.
