At the end of last summer we had a great walk in the Otari bush reserve. I got back to the car before the rest of the family and sat on a rock reflecting on the end of the lovely weather and the nearing end of our time in Wellington, before leaving to live in the Wairarapa. One of Wellington’s features that had me mesmerised from the day we arrived were the magnificent Pohutakawa trees. I love their flowering season and then the beauty of how their petals suddenly drop and get dispersed by the wind. Whilst I was sitting on my rock waiting, I observed how the beautiful petals accumulated on three different surfaces – the man made road verge, a rock and the bark of the tree itself. The only camera I had was my iPhone so I set to work.
ps , did I ever say I love texture ….?
