Another lovely view from NZ, Janice...I love how you have modelled yourselves on Scotland :-)
The combination of land and sea with the wee yachts dotted around really does make this an attractive and interesting shot. Very pleasant indeed!
I hope to one day make a stop over in NZ, my oldest cousin lives there, and I think it's high time I see her again, it's been more than seven years since I last saw her! And the fact that she lives in such a stunning part of the planet, really does add more motive to seeing her again. ;)
Beautiful landscape you caught here... and it's so laid back with the sail boats hanging around in the little cove... beautifully natural. Thank you for sharing this Janice. :)
(The note is very lovely too... must have been a great ceremony!)

A wonderful landscape with attractive blue & green colours & good sharpness. The fg vineyard & posts add depth. Tfs!
Very good eh..Evening, Janice.
Wow, what a lovely place this is.
Excellent looking picture you took there. What a magnificent view.! Sure a place to be.
Seen the photo of the wedding couple, looks very lovely too.
Bit late, but congratulations for them.
The story sounds like ours, when our Ingrid got married in Sicily. We rented a large villa at the sloopes of the Etna, since that we're in love with Sicily. Especially when after Johnny got married there a Sicilian girl and is living there now.

Nice capture of Waiheke Janice.
Reminds me of my time there on Christian camps in the 70s and staying with friends at Palm Beach.
Also used to sail around there a lot.

A lovely view, and one I remember from a six weeks roundtrip at NZ some years ago. Should have been there now...
Warm good colors, and a fine composition.
Very good depth created by the nearby vegetation.
Best regards from the snow and moonshine far north.

The FG brown trees lead the eye to the penninsula which leads the eye to the islands which leads the eye to the blue water which leads the eye to the volcano. The composition is great. TFS. K2
