A Little Bit of NZ

Some photos taken a few weeks ago on a morning's walk into the bush, then along a black sand beach called Bethel's Beach. The beach features huge sand dunes which are regularly used for All BLack's training. Not an All BLack in sight though the morning I went there.

Hope you enjoy and can find something to inspire the artist in you

Lovely pictures, my favorite was the one in the middle. Had a bit of fun with it (tried all sorts of things on it and hit upon my attached - if only I had written down all that I did so I could recreate effect on other photos, d'oh). Didn't do anything "painterly" so I hope its ok.

Thank you for sharing.

Gorgeous interpretations!

The bush area is indeed very tranquil, cool and calming with only the sounds of water and birds. I love the serenity and mysticism portrayed Kerry

Craig, the All BLacks are New Zealand's Rugby team. They run up and down the sand dunes to develop fitness and strength in the thighs.

lkroll, stunning colours and heaps of energy in the painting. The fluffy 'things' are 'toitoi' or sometimes known as Prince of Wales' Feathers though I think there is some technical difference between the two species. I'm not sure, but I have a fascination for them especially against blue skies.

Thank you

Beautiful photo's Leanan'si hope to see more of your country in the future

Kerry i agree does look very tranquil

Very nice Ikroll the grass looks very feathery

Leanan'si the grass looks like what we call Pampass Grass here ( we grow it as ornamental grass here ) and it does look "pompous" (funny ikroll)

Also i think in the interests of artistic licence get down that beach and stake it out and get us some beefcake photo's of the all blacks

Pompous grass alias pampass grass alias Prince of Whales feathers (I do agree, this sounds a bit strange anatomically). Interesting...

Thanks all.

Looking at it with less tired eyes, I know I could have done a cleaner job. lol

By the way, thanks for the extra info leanan; still looks like Pompous Grass to me.
