The Church Below The Mountain

‘The Church Below The Mountain’

Biomimicry – where animals mimic their surrounds, and man made objects copy nature.

In this shot of an Anglican church in a small New Zealand town, the church’s roof and steeple mirror the apex of the mountain and the trees jutting from it.

Sometimes imitation isn’t just flattery; it can be aspirational.

Aren’t we all reaching upwards for a touch of heaven?

The church is handsome, but as in the story of Moses, it’s always the mountain that challenges and inspires.

Painted In Memory

‘Painted In Memory’

This is a vista of Mangawhai Heads in New Zealand’s Northland, shot in the falling afternoon today but painted with the memories of our stays here over twenty years.

So many good times!

This view, from the deck of the place we stay, never seems to change, even if we have changed and continue to change over time.

It is a restful anchor for weary souls.

Sublime and serene!
