Excellent picture and stunning place Ian. LIKE! Greetings Berend

Apart from the general beauty everywhere, I was captivated by the way the house rooflines and gables seem to mirror the forms of the peaks in the background.

Greetings, Berend. My NZ journey continues, and I appreciate your enjoyment of it. At this location we were only 2 kms from an area called Paradise.

Thanks for the appreciation of the image.

Greetings Jeff,

Someone drove up this valley, having seen the name Paradise on the map. When they arrived in this vicinity they saw someone and asked them, "Are we in Paradise yet?"

"Open your eyes," was the appropriate reply.

Thanks for the Like, too.


ƤōƝƓ-not going to Vi… on June 4, 2011

Bringing this beautiful valley to many more people in the world through GE is a special privilege, I reckon. As long as the numbers of visitors do not grow too rapidly.

Thank you Ah-Pong.
