very nice image, thought it might be a painting...
I will back there in a month's time, Geerten, so I will see if the painting has changes colour! The tall poplars will be golden for a start, so if I can arrange for a golden paraglider to sail again, it will be a colourful 'painting".
By the way, some of your favourite country is completely flooded at the moment: the whole of the South West - the Channel Country - is under water. Bedourie had 350mm rain one day early this week! There are a few bogged tourists out there having to be airlifted out to safety. Bedourie is surrounded by hits dykes, like an egg in a frying pan. Bet you can't imagine Bedourie needing dykes!!
Thanks for your visit and kind comment.

I've also heard that NZ grasslands are also man-made, aren't they?
Wouldn't you like to be launching out beneath a paraglider to go drifting over the valley, Ah-Pong?
New Zealand was generally clothed with native forests and scrubs from one end to the other, so most of the sheep grazing lands have been cleared and pasture species have been introduced. As it is for the dairy industry which depends on cultivation and improved pastures.
Thanks for the awards, my friend.
