Cows and clouds and angel hair

OK, they are bulls – fans of Joni Mitchell will be equally outraged either way by my unpoetic license with her lyrics. I like these spiderwebby clouds, seen here over a friends farm where I was working today. Hard to really get the effect in a photo. Soon after this a norwester gale came up and really blew away the cobwebs. Another pic before that:


Fallen jewels

I am amazed how in nature even the litter looks amazing! Each item of ‘rubbish’ is an ornament, the ‘rubbish heaps’ works of art. These rewarewa flowers were lying on a track in Tararua forest park.
