Land of the long white cloud


This morning I was greeted by the “Long white clouds.

Just beautiful.

The brown patch is where pine trees have been harvested this year. Al the dark tree patches are waiting to be cut down next year.

The night of January 31 up to early morning February 1, 2018

Today’s lunar eclipse was the first to coincide with a Blue Moon – a second full moon in one month – in North America in over 150 years. It was also the second “supermoon” of 2018, with the moon appearing slightly bigger and brighter than usual due to its closeness to Earth. And to top it off, the supermoon passed through Earth’s shadow this morning, casting a reddish hue on the lunar surface for more than 4 hours.

After this awesome display, I woke up, got ready to go to school for the first before school care session. Opening my front door I saw the following daybreak.

That Thursday afternoon all hell broke loose over New Zealand with a cyclone battering the country.  There were King tides after the moon’s display the night before.

We survived but some people were not so lucky.

Dense: The Daily Post: Photo Challenge


This week, share your take on “dense” — you could focus on a natural landscape like I did, or take the theme in a different direction, from a sweaty crowd at a rock concert or a busy avenue during rush hour to a fresh loaf of bread, waiting for someone to take the first bite.

Last weekend I had the opportunity to fly from Wellington, NZ North Island to Nelson NZ, South Island. It was very cloudy when we left Wellington.

DENSE clouds.
