portal

a doorway, gate, or other entrance,
especially a large and imposing one.

One of the portals between…

…different gardens at the

Hamilton Gardens in New Zealand.

I am told doors similar to these

featured in Narnia.

Still in New Zealand’s

North Island.

 We were travelling between

Whakatane and Whangamata

and captured a few images of this river.

Last week I published this image thinking

it was White Island…

Many thanks to Betty’s expert for

clarifying my White Island query.

Turns out I was sold a furphy and this is not

White Island (the volcano) but,

Moutohora Island also called Whale Island

and it’s only about 9 km from shore.

Makes a lot more sense.

Our Auckland born and bred daughter-in-law

had not ever visited the end of her motherland

and was no help 🙂

In  2018 during our North Island road trip

we visited the Ohope (southern) end of

The Bay of Plenty

Locals told me this was White Island.

In view of recent activity over there I was

just wondering if you could clarify that for me please.

I was only using a 250 mm lens and the island

appears much closer than the 50 km it is

from Whakatane or Optiki Beaches.

Happy New Year to you Betty and thank

you for visiting my site and introducing yours.

Oranges of sorts from all over.

General Motors called this colour ‘Jaffa‘.

Most people call it orange.

 

 

A burnt orange?

 

Even the clothes line has orange.

 

Oranges?

 

 

Another orange colored daisy.
