Time to stand and stare

Duncan Cunningham

Richmond, New Zealand

Artist's Description

Dusk settling behind the Kahurangi Mountains as seen from Richmond near Nelson. I often wonder how many of the residents of the houses on the ridge nearby actually prefer the evening news on tv to a sight like this. It brings to mind a poem by William H Davies: “Leisure”, the first two lines of which are:

“What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.”

I get all philosophical with this stuff…
