Seasons revolving. Contrasts of Molesworth Station

I’ve been photographing a book about Molesworth Station; New Zealand’s largest station at 200,000 hectares (500,000 acres!).

 The dramatic changes in landscapes, colours and seasons are imperceptible to our human time scale.  I’ve just compared 3 photos taken 5 months apart and watched the richness of colour fade out to a stark reality of a barren winter landscape.  Beautiful.

Just loving looking out the office window at the horizontal rain flying past (STILL!).
Loving the Wellington weather
Southerly still blasting, and feels like it will never end.  Best thing however… is when you can take your out of town visitors to the Wellington South Coast and scare the living daylights out of them as you watch the planes taking off and landing!

Here’s a few past images of storms hitting Wellington to make you wish you were here.
