This is the view that I enjoyed the most during my quadbike tour.
It was lambing time and the paddock was full of newborns so we didn’t go down to the lake but the view from the ridge was fantastic.
And then the clouds parted as if to mirror the small lake…..
It was as if the land had recognised that I was there, and that I was enjoying being there, so it smiled back.
The family connection to this land is very strong and places like “Neilson Country” are a special part of Aotearoa.
