Here and there

Like a lot of my photography, I try to notice the unnoticed, and this lot are the next batch. Some more photo’s taken while moving about for no particular reason. In New Zealand we are so lucky to have such amazing scenery literally everywhere you look. This is just stuff I saw, no special trips required. This is New Zealand, the bits we drive past every day.

Huntsman from the Rangitikei Hunt Club. They don't actually hunt anything. They just get dressed up and ride about in the scenery.
