Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond | The Daily Post

In this challenge I have looked for photos where the subject has been in the foreground but which (probably more by accident than design in my case), the background draws you in other directions…beyond…

Raurimu down the hill Aug 04

The purpose of this photo was to have the national roading agency on about the recurring pot holes at the top of our driveway where it meets the state highway…in the distance though, you can see the road reappear as it rises north out of Raurimu, on its way to Owhango and beyond…

Follyfoot in the Mangaroa Valley May 03 - 1

This is Follyfoot Farm (no, not the farm of teen screams in the 70s!) at the northern end of the Mangaroa Valley, which parallels the Hutt Valley in Wellington.

Greg, Dan, Tom, Bren, Jock, Maurice, Ash and Mr Stead on the Red Lakes track

This was taken on a  7th form study trip in 1981 up to Mt Cook – that’s Mt Cook Village below and, beyond, the mountains rise to peak at Mt Cook. The picture was taken about where the Mt Cook Village inset box intercepts the track in the map below.  Unwin Hut at the bottom of the map is where we stayed for the week…if you’d like to know more about Mt Cook Village walks, click the map…
