Look, I can see some SHEEP!

This is taken from Okura, about 10 kms north from where I live at Murrays Bay, in the East Coast Bays of Auckland. It was late afternoon and the sun was getting low in the sky.

I am overlooking farmland to the Whangaparaoa Peninsula where Dawn lives. Her house is up there on one of the cliffs closer to the right hand side of the water you can see.

If you look closely – real close, you can see some sheep, some REAL NEW ZEALAND SHEEP. I can see 5. . .

Now, the water you can see is part of the Hauraki Gulf, and close to the mouth of the Okura River.

And, if you have nothing to do this Saturday morning, Dawn and I are racing our boats against each other. We’re so happy to have found boats named after us and decided to see who’s boat is faster. Stormy Dawn or Janice of Wyoming.

So, see you there, under the cliffs by Gulf Harbour:
Saturday, 22 July 2006,
10am New Zealand time.

Come along and cheer us!!

Beautiful looking countryside, nice light... I like this one. I can see why East Cost Bays is such a popular place, I hope this doesn't get overrun by developments any time soon.

Hi Janice,
wonderful panoramic view with good colour and light. I am convinced you are having a shot at Dawn when you post these shots. Interesting to see that NZ like Launceston still has livestock so close to teh city. TFS,

Good light and composition make a good landscape
Very nice

Hi Janice. Beautiful landscape. The afternoon sun gives a golden glow and emphasises the contours of land.
Yes, I see the sheeps but where are the cows!!
Cheers, ^_^
