Marlborough Sounds from Picton Lookout.


Sky Watch.

Looking down the Marlborough Sounds from the Picton lookout on the hill, past the wharves and the ships, on a dull overcast day.
Not every day in Paradise is perfect! But its still beautiful in its own way.
The tall flower heads are our native Flax bush flowers so loved by our Bell birds and Tuis for the sweet nectar.

Lovely shot. Of course, as I am in New Mexico, every photo with water catches my eye.

It was nice to visit your part of the world.

Interesting photo...I was struck with the similarity between this ferry harbor and ours in Horseshoe Bay, BC. I'll try to include a link to photos

I remember spending a few days in sunny Picton, whilst touring around the south island. I was suffering from sunburn from my walk around Kaikoura a few days earlier :)

Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigs? I buy all my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 70% on cigarettes.
