Cuningham House Glass House at the Botanic Gardens

The Cuningham House glass house located in the Christchurch Botanic Gardens has recently re-opened after strengthening work (it has been closed since the 2011 earthquake). It’s a fabulous place to spend a cold winter day – so warm and lush. I went there today with my photo club and we were all very pleased to have it back as not only is it a lovely place to visit it has a lot of wonderful photographic subjects.

Clouds coming over the Port Hills

Another cold day today. It got to a high of 5 degrees and I don’t recall seeing the sun at all. I took this photo in Ferrymead Park with the dramatic clouds coming over the Port hills.

Horseman Sculpture on Bealey Avenue

Spotted on Bealey Avenue at the entrance to a motel (think it was the Southern Comfort). An excellent land mark for people trying to find the motel – there are quite a few motels on Bealey Avenue, so a great way to stand out.

Rainbow this Morning

A cold day today with a rainy start. I saw this rainbow this morning and made a dash for my camera – rainbows I’ve discovered can very quickly disappear when you decide to photograph them. This one appears to end in the Heathcote River.
