For some reason I’m having a bit of a nostalgia wave today, so thought I’d share an old photo that brings back a bunch of memories.
I took this shot over a decade ago during a brief return to New Zealand from my then-base of London. Having just spent a night or two with my family at the bach (holiday home) in Hanmer Springs, I stopped the car at a viewpoint on the way back to the main road.
This was a view I had seen literally dozens of times before, but remembering the dreary winter grey of London gave scenes like this a new poignancy. I remember standing at that little viewpoint with the sun on my back and a smile on my face, looking at an idyllic scene from the little country I called home.
