This view is looking North West towards the Rimutakas, and eventually to Wellington which is about an hour away.

Renaming this shot from "Gatewaqy to the Wairarapa" to Featherston, New Zealand to match the wikipedia entry.

This is an experiment to see if the Wikipedia entry on Google Earth selects this shot for the new photos section.

Regards, `Tony

After months of regular checking, this shot is now the main shot for the Wikipedia "places" entry Featherston, New Zealand on Google Earth.

To date, this shot has been viewed 260 times.

The next experiment is to see if being the main photo on the wiki entry improves the view count.

Regards, Tony

Thanks for adding these pictures and also the map!! I am from Australia however my mums side of the family live in Featherston, was trying to explain to the people at work how amazing the area is and how beautiful it is, and was able to show them! and because of the map could actually show them where our family farm is. Thank you!

Glad I could help out, Sam. As you can see I have a lot of photos of Featherston and the Wairarapa.

Cheers, Tony

The Lady Featherston Cafe is now the Sass Cafe. I have uploaded a photo of it. (Nearly my first one !) So things keep changing !

I'm going to have to retake a bunch of shots now, Fiona!

Cheers, Tony in NZ
