Macro photos from Whakatane's Hillcrest Cemetery

Recently the other half bought a macro lens for us both to experiment here are a few of my favourite images I took at Whakatane Cemetery last weekend - enjoy:

I spotted an old watch that someone has put inside a hole on a Celtic gravestone - I wonder if it belonged to the occupant?

Fabric daisies that have faded from all the sun - these were sitting in a jar next to a grave.

Mum - a plaque belong to who must've been a dearly loved member of someone's family.

A green and red Echevaria thriving in a pot with other succulents.

Moss on an old pottery jar at another grave - looks like it's been there for quite a few years.

A very nice peaceful place that is well looked after :-) Linking up with Macro Monday...

Yellow gazanias and driftwood sculptures at Ohope beach

Over the weekend we did a bit of a tiki tour around Whakatane, one of the spots we visited was lovely Ohope beach. Beautiful hot sunny Spring day and awesome scenery - yellow gazanias growing in the sand on the hillside and a driftwood sculpture on the sand - just perfect!

Sand patterns at Mount Maunganui beach

I saw these patterns in the sand the other day at the beach - they looked fascinating to me, even though the sea and the waves made these I thought they were really cool, especially the way the sun and sky was reflecting on the water :-)

Super starfish at Mount Maunganui beach

Our walk along the beach Sunday morning was a bit more interesting than usual...instead of just walking along the sand we explored the rock pools as the tide was out. We spotted thse large starfish clinging to the rocks in the low water. Something I love checking out are all the sea creatures so these guys were very cool to photograph :-)

Surfcasters at Sulphur Point

It's been good to have a change in the weather here in Tauranga, so much rain over Spring but for the last couple of days it's been sunny and warm, certainly Summer is on it's way. After work on Thursday I braved the traffic queues to drive out to Sulphur Point Marina, one of the local places near the extensive port.

These guys looked like they were making the most of an afternoon off from work - not sure if they caught anything but I sure was envious of them :-)
