Pastoral scenes New Zealand





I snapped these pics on a recent road trip
as we drove along the highway
hence the lack of detail. 



New Zealand is green most of the year.

On our trip to Ireland last year
I noticed the similarities in the landscape.
True there were not as many sheep in Ireland
but the rolling hills were a familiar sight




I'm joining Eileen for Saturday Critters

Thank you all for your visits.

Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt




Shane

It looks like Ireland and parts of Scotland too. Maybe this is why so many Scots and Irish felt at home when they emigrated.
Thanks for sharing - enjoy your weekend!

I think New Zeeland must have the prize for the most sheep . . .
A Pastoral scene for sure . . .
Love the green . . .

True beauty. Looks so peaceful.

Yes indeed, the landscape looks in a way the similar to the Scottish landscape, but New Zealand has such a variety of landscapes and natural beauty on a relatively small 'island' I have not seen on any place in the world.
Love the rolling hills and of course sheep!

I've been working on a series I call "Drive-by Shootings"-- all photos taken while in motion in the car! I especially love that pastoral field with the sheep!

I live in Taupo, New Zealand and I never tire of our countryside. Thank you for sharing these lovely photos.

Oh Shane, such lovely countryside you have there in New Zealand!! We've seen all the "Lord of the Rings" movies -- we're big fans of the books and movies here. That was my introduction to the beauty of New Zealand. :) Thanks for sharing the pretty pictures -- hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs,

Denise

Lovely!

I'm struck by the similarities between these photos and ones I've taken here. Metchosin, just outside Victoria, is known for sheep raising and at this time of year the oaks are just leafing out and the fields are brilliant green. Beautiful!

Linda Kunsman said...

oh how beautiful- and i had no idea the landscape of NZ was so similar to Ireland!

It's certainly like nothing we see here in Florida! Love those green hills and they support a lot of animals! Nice!

Deborah Montgomery said...

Beautiful! So green. Love the sheep under that great old tree. Such a peaceful scene.

Such amazing shades of green! Weather is finally warming up somewhat here so soon our fields will be green too. I love all the different shades of green that we have in the spring.
