A walk down River Road

April 27, 2017

I drive down Avonside Drive a lot, and if it’s the right time of the day, I usually wish I could pull over and take a few photos on the side of the road. It’s a busy road though and there’s no real pedestrian access on the left-hand side as you travel East. So, for a while I’ve been meaning to park on River Road and photograph this area from the other side. As you can see, I finally did that today late in the Autumnal light, and I’ve been rewarded with so many wonderful views. The land backing onto River Road is part of the Residential Red Zone – with the homes demolished long ago now. The photos were taken between Cowlishaw Street and Stanmore Road.

Autumn Splendor in the Botanic Gardens

April 21, 2017

View of the Avon River from the bridge to the Botanic Gardens – watch out for low-flying ducks!

The Botanic Gardens are just stunning this time of year, and I always feel I ‘over do’ the Autumn photos – but it’s hard to stop snapping away when the light and the colours are so appealing.

This tree is now officially known as ‘Michelle’s favourite tree in the gardens’ – as I keep leading my other half on walks to this spot so I can take yet another photo of the tree.

Autumn Ducklings

May 13, 2016

We’ve had a very mild Autumn with most days reaching 20-something degrees celcius. So it’s probably not surprising then that some Christchurch locals are a bit confused and think it’s Spring! These adorable ducklings were spotted in the Botanic Gardens. At one point they all got out of the pond and walked right past me!
