Here is my second offering from my adventure in the central Otago high country, five days ago. As I drove slowly back down from the snowline, I had time to savor the perspectives that each turn provided. This is the view I had from my highest point, when I decided to stop my ascent before it became too slippery.

We assent to your ascent.
Now be decent and watch for my descent.
With you and me we’ve now got an etymological quorum
For me to point out that decent is related to decorum.
Stunning vista, Gary!
Full agreement here!
Beautiful view, Gary. I especially like the low-hanging clouds in the distance.
There were predictions of possible rain (and snow in the higher country), but it didn’t happen where we were. Lucky!
Great mountain scenery!
It was good to get back into the South Island high country again!
To breathe in the clean air is worth alone to escape into the mountains.
Stunning landscape…… and image. This is one of those photos that make me feel the chill as though I am right there, standing in the shadow of the rock(s).
Happily there was very little wind, so it was pleasant in the extreme.
Seeing both the patchy snow on the grass and the distant furrowed hills and clouds brings the whole landscape in.
All the elements combined to provide natural framing. This is one of those magic spots where you can almost shoot blindly over your shoulder and be fairly confident of a decent image. Almost. Thanks, Lynn.
I love to experience some of that coolth, as well as the chance to admire the scenery.
You have taught me another new (and wonderful) word. I thought you’d invented it, but I see that it’s legit. Thank you!
Beautiful country! :)
It sure is, and there’s more to come!
Outstanding landscape by a photographer out standing in the landscape.. Very nice, Gary.
It was good to be standing out there and scaping the land at my leisure. Thanks, Steve.
