This was during a walk along a green space beside a motorway. I was liking the shape of the tree against the sky. This is one of the recurring themes of the photos from NZ, a tree against a background, trying to make it stand out, or show how the light was falling on it. This one is a failure in that regard.
Part of the Auckland Botanical Gardens, trying for a geometric shot.
Same gardens, trying for art. You there, I can see you rolling your eyes.
The light was doing interesting things, except the camera didn't see it in these next couple shots.
At this point I was still taken with ferns and pretty flowers.
