The magic of night

I am a shift worker.

The beauty of being a shift worker is that I get to experience the environment I work in at all hours of day and night……I find night time the most magical!

Here’s why.

On a warm mid-summers night, this amazing place is peaceful and serene.

This is Otago University and on nights like this I am swept up in its magical nature.

Thanks for coming to see.  🙂

A Sunny Winter Day in Dunedin, New Zealand

Winter is here!

In Dunedin we are experiencing a rather cold one.  We have had sleet, snow, ice, rain and wind. It has been bitterly cold with temperatures of minus ten degrees and we are just not used to that.  But it does make for excellent phatic communion with everyone I meet in my day!

In among all the terrible and gloomy cold days, there have been some absolute gifts of days where the sun has given some warmth and the world has seemed golden in its rays.

On one such day I was able to enjoy being out and about with my camera and ventured to the Dunedin Botanic Garden and Signal Hill where I happily captured these moments of winter.

These twisted branches are the original Rhododendrons planted in the Botanic Garden
