Not Quite Easter Island

If you’ve ever lived on an island, you’ll have noticed the small weirdnesses that isolation brings. It gets a bit tribal somedays.  After the recent fires and storms, the Dangaris went back to their old ways… building ritual sites out of the fallen timber.

These were ephemeral moai… gone in a few days. It’s getting chilly here and firewood is hard to come by.


After The Storm

This week, share a force of nature from your corner of the world.

This is very topical for me. Two weeks ago we had a ‘twenty year storm’ that happened at a time of high tides. The beach where I get some of my best photos got trashed. The lovely beach front houses lost over a metre of land. You can see where a rock wall has saved one garden. The rest look like a bulldozer has been through.
