And in Life's noisiest hour,

There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,

The heart's Self-solace and soliloquy.

______________________

 

You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ;

And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart

Thro' all my Being, thro' my pulses beat ;

You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,

Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve

On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.

And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,

How oft ! I bless the Lot, that made me love you.

 

The Presence of Love by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)

Taken near the Power Station intake at Lake Coleridge. We rushed to catch the sunset and water reflections. It was a beautiful sunset in New Zealand…as always 8-)

is quite a remote place.. Lake Coleridge, a beautiful recreational area. ca 2 hours from Christchurch. in pioneer days it took 3 days to reach the blue but icy cold waters as you see here, is the runoff from the surrounding mountains and is then chaneled into the hydro powerstation. the area around the lake is used as sheepstation..huge sheepstation

Canterbury, New Zealand

Taken from Hooker River Valley Track at the Mount Cook National Park. We climbed down the rocks to get to the river's edge. the rocks were huge!

To Nature

 

It may indeed be fantasy when I

Essay to draw from all created things

Deep, heartfelt, inward joy that closely clings;

And trace in leaves and flowers that round me lie

Lessons of love and earnest piety.

So let it be; and if the wide world rings

In mock of this belief, it brings

Nor fear, nor grief, nor vain perplexity.

So will I build my altar in the fields,

And the blue sky my fretted dome shall be,

And the sweet fragrance that the wild flower yields

Shall be the incense I will yield to Thee,

Thee only God! and thou shalt not despise

Even me, the priest of this poor sacrifice.

Taken from the Mount Cook National Park. There is a track that leads to a Look out. The view is amazing. If you zoom in you can see the glacier.

Another stop on the way to the West Coast was at the gorgeous Lake Coleridge -a wonderful high country lake, surrounded with mountains. These flowers commonly known here as Vipers Bugloss were growing on one of the gravel banks.

HBW everyone!

Blue skies and sunshine could only mean one thing....time for a Sunday drive. It also meant a chance to test drive the 10 stop ND I bought for use with the Hasselblad a while back and start getting my head round exposure times.
