Full Circle

On my way home I stopped for the night at a great AirBnB apartment in Nelson, and it rained pretty much the entire way from when I took the photos of the Kea at Arthurs Pass until I got to Nelson.

I had chosen this apartment as it’s on a hill directly above Nelson port and the photos of the view looked amazing… But when I got up the next morning I actually LOL’d at the view!

It amused me that a month ago, on my first morning in Kenepuru Sound I woke to a view of fog filling the sounds… And I then proceeded to shoot some of the best photos of the entire trip… So I wasn’t disappointed at a lack of the panoramic view, far from it… But I just hoped the fog would lift enough to see something, before check out time…

Lucked in and three Kea were hanging around the lookout above the massive viaduct at the top of Arthurs Pass…. A guy turned up in an old ambulance, started cooking lunch and one of the Kea was being very inquisitive (& clever!) checking out one of his bags…
