WARNING - there are a lot of photo's below...
I did try to reduce them from 100's to only a few
but it was damn near impossible to not want to
show every single one of them to you.
New Zealand you stole our hearts and
took our breath away!
No.2 Child - teaching them young (selfies)...
no seriously we just
couldn't resist stopping the car to take another
photo of some beautiful scenery!
No.1 Child also taking photo's of beautiful scenery.
Glacier tour in Mt Cook
check that scenery out behind us!
The best ice cream you've ever tasted!
More Queenstown photo's(our favourite place)
just before the Shotover Jet Boat Ride.
After the Shotover. We loved it so much that we
did it twice.
We didn't meet the Duke and Duchess, they were a week
or so before us, but we did see some photo's on the wall of fame.
The Autumn colours just sing to you
my two on the ski lift to go further up Bob's Peak
to reach the top of the Luge Track
View from the top of the Skyline Gondala on Bob's Peak
there are natural water falls every where.
New Zealand is not called the "land of the long white cloud" for nothing
and lastly off road Quad biking in Franz Josef. LOADS of fun!

in a few days, I will be heading to this great
country for a holiday with my family.
First we hit Christchurch and
then do a tour of the
South Island of New Zealand.
To say I'm excited is an understatement.
So it will be a little quiet around these
parts for about 2 weeks.
Hope to share a few happy snaps
when we get back.

For those who aren't aware, I live in the
Pilbara - Western Australia.
Our weather here is a little different to the rest
of Western Australia. Our summers are extremely hot
and dry and our winters are more like
So currently in the Pilbara we are in
the season of Autumn. However when I think of
colours that relate to Autumn in the Pilbara,
I don't think of oranges and browns with
a hint of green. I think more along the line of different
shades of reds, with maybe a little hint of orange and green.
Here is my version of a windy day in the Pilbara in Autumn.

above is how the background looked after I had
finished adding my spray paints
Then I brayered on some white paint
Above is after I had covered it with
a layer of Gel Medium
and stained it red
Adding the tree
Close up of the trunk texture
and once the blossoms have been added
and finally I had a little fun with
Pixlr and created my own little
poster using this painting
as always thank you for taking the time
to read my blog
