Shadow Shot Sunday..

Thanks to Tracy over at Hey Harriet for hosting us, you can visit her over at Shadow Shot Sunday: http://heyharriet.blogspot.com/


Yesterday ( Saturday) we drove to the North Shore of Auckland, about 120kms from where we live, and an hours drive, to visit an elderly friend who is in hospital. After the visit we went to Devonport, a suburb in Auckland that is on the waters edge and has the most amazing views of the city.  The majority of people who live in Devonport and work in the city take the ferry to work, as it is only about a 10 - 15minue trip. I have added a couple of shots looking across at the city.

 The rescue helicopter, this was taken from the fifth floor window at the hospital..


These Clydesdales and wagon are waiting outside the ferry building to take tourists for a ride around Devonport..










Enjoy your weekend ..

Great shots, Angela! I like those horses!

The waters and skyline of Auckland are dramatic and beautiful! Shadows abound, starting with the rotors on the helicopter. The horses are large but docile, merely awaiting their orders to pull the wagon. What wonderful views!

What a beautiful ride that ferry must be, unless it's storming, that could be a little scary, but what a beautiful skyline of the city and the port.

Have a wonderful week ahead in the warm spring air, bet it's budding all over the place!

Looks like you had a great day, nice shots. My cousin lived in Auckland but is now in Wanganui. I've not been for a visit, mores the pity. Love those Clydesdales.

Hey Harriet

What fun shots! I love the horses and wagon photos. It looks like such a charming and old-fashioned area! I hope your friend in hospital is improving.

Have yourself an awesome week :)
