Branch Creek Station - Cardrona Valley

I recently was taken over this station by our friend Ray, 16,000 acres in the Cardrona Valley beside Mt Cardrona.  Incredibly beautiful, challenging wild country - you have to take your hat off to the blokes and blokesses who farm these magnificient stations.

Winter in Wellington

Some of my pics as I wandered around Wellington this winter.  Bolton Street public graveyard, sculptures, waterfront and coast.

SOFITEL HOTEL, WELLINGTON

This is a recent commission job to provide framed images for the Ground floor and corridors on the upper 12 floors of the new Sofitel in Wellington from Space Studio Auckland.  An exciting challenging job and the brief was Botanical which is right up my alley.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable job, involving a lot of work with flowers which I love, with like minded people, with happy results.  Peonies of course taken last Spring, in anticipation.

 

Another of the images used on the Sofitel and on alot of the Hotel advertising as shown.
