A prolific amount of lichen moss grows on this wooden fence surrounding an old cemetery in Bay of Islands, New Zealand. In a place so synonymous with death, it’s ironic that the fence seems alive.

Frayed edges hang from
a hole in heaven’s blanket.
Someone named it fog.

What are the odds I’d capture this shot of sheep stopping traffic on a busy road? Well, the odds are pretty good when you’re in New Zealand, apparently, but it’s certainly not a sight I’d ever seen before!

A tiny moon on a quiet evening off the beautiful coast of New Zealand! There’s a tiny sailboat in the picture, too!

Emerald green and waterfall-rich, Milford Sound is located in New Zealand’s Fjordland National Park. It is breathtaking in any weather, but when it rains in Milford Sound, as it did when we were there, the waterfalls multiply with magnificence as they cascade down the towering cliffs carved by glaciers during the ice age. It was a spectacular sight and one of my favorite travel memories!
From inside the bus, rain trickled down the window.
Standing in the rain, the downpour continued!
