This shearers hut with its mountain backdrop is a typical NZ high country vista, except that more often than not it’s raining!

I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of buildings, battered boats up on dry dock, rotting wood, bark of trees, and so on. Im fascinated by the color and texture that appears with a macro lens. I do almost no post-processing after taking the shot.

    This is gorgeous Marguerite – the balance between the shaded wall and the highlights works really well and the vista is incredible.

    No, I dont – its just one of the many mountains that make up the Southern Alps of NZ. It is not one of the well known named peaks. Thanks for your visit and comments!
