Finally home Marilyn? Welcome back! Greetings, Claudia.

Marilyn Whiteley on October 5, 2007

Thanks, Bruce. I loved the landscape and felt fortunate to find this spot where several things combined--rolling hills, sheep, gorse in bloom, and the abandoned house.

And yes, Claudia, thanks for your welcome. Back at last!

Cheers, Marilyn

Hello Marilyn A beautiful picture! I like it, and a beautiful place too I imagine. Thanks for sharing all those pictures of New Zeland. Cheers, Sylvie

Hello Marilyn! I like this one, too! You must be quite busy working on your photos. Thanks for sharing them with us! Cheers, Anne

Marilyn Whiteley on October 11, 2007

Hello, Bruce, Syl, and Anne, and thanks for your comments. Yes, just a few minutes ago I got my photos copied from my husband's laptop (which he took on the trip) to mine. There's work ahead, but I really enjoyed hearing from you folks as I went along. I'll be posting some more photos soon, but I'll try to keep the number under control. (One's photos are sort of like one's children: not everybody feels as interested or enthusiastic about them as the parent/photographer does!)

Greetings from Canada, Marilyn

Another great landscape!

I seen all Your uploads so far (began today from Your most recent one) and every photo from You are asking for my special comments or compliments!

I imagine - this are only those photos, and might be less part from all Your SD memory chips, You shared so far with us! Please do not forget put Your travel diary in book and share for reading! :)

Marilyn Whiteley on October 19, 2007

Thank you, Ainars, for your many kind comments. Yes, I still have many photos, now transferred to my computer. I keep noticing ones I like, and posting a few of them, but I try to restrain myself and not add too many to Panoramio!

I remember your earlier comment, and I have now looked at some sites offering travel blogs, and I may do that. Thank you for encouraging me.

I like the place an photo...greetings from Chile.

Marilyn Whiteley on October 31, 2007

Thank you, Mauricio. It is a place I would like to stay for awhile--though that house is beyond repair! Greetings from Canada.

Mauricio Montenegro on November 1, 2007

I would like to wake up every morning with that spectacular place.

Andreas Wiesner on December 4, 2007

Gorgeous landscape - i´d like to pack my boots and go there. Nz is full of great places, i miss it a bit. Good composition with the old house in front, but not too prominent, well done!

Cheers, Andreas

Marilyn Whiteley on December 4, 2007

Thanks, Andreas. The only problem with New Zealand is that there's so much beauty that, if you stopped to photograph everything you liked, you'd never get where you were going! Cheers, Marilyn

Andreas Wiesner on December 5, 2007

I know what you mean - i was lucky to spend there six great months and so i had lots of time...and the result is: thousands of pictures!

Cheers, Andreas!

Wonderful shot. I think I could camp out in that little house for several weeks and be very content.

Marilyn Whiteley on May 21, 2008

Thanks, bearden82, for feeling the same attraction I did to this intriguing place!

Another typical NZ scenery. It recalls me some hours spent on the gravel roads in rural part of the country. Well spotted, Marilyn!

Cheers, Tom
