Country Fences New Zealand

I spent yesterday in the countryside
meeting with clients.
My job is in the dairy industry
and I love getting out of the office
and meeting them on farm.

It was a balmy Summery day
even though the calendar says differently 
and we are officially in Autumn.

It also gave me the opportunity
to take some photos to share with you here!

I'm joining Tex for Good Fences.

Just letting you know I'm still researching cameras
so I'm very interested in your recommendations.
I'm looking for a camera with a great lens
that can capture good detail of a distant landscape
as well as taking close ups 
of flowers, insects and birds.
I know I may need a separate lens for close-ups.

Take care and
be kind to one another

  1. Hello Shane, lovely landscapes and fence shots. I like the cute cow. It is great you are able to work outside of the office. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day!

  2. Hello Shane, what lovely pictures of the green countryside, always a feature in NZ. Can you believe, it is almost 12 months since we went to Auckland and met up with you? Time flies, such happy memories. xox

  3. All of us people who worked indoors and longingly looked out the windows on beautiful days and wished they could escape our desks are jealous of your job.

  4. Visiting farms in the countryside would be a favorite part of a job for me too. Such nice photos!

  5. Oh, it would be awfully nice to get out of the office and down on the farm! What wonderful views!

  6. Beautiful photos. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  7. Beautiful views of the farmland and fences. The Great Dane's father was in the dairy business, and The Great Dane himself worked during the high school years in a dairy. The children and I have learned never, ever to give an opinion on ice cream, cream milk etc due to the risk of a very long talk on the subject! (He became an engineer, but dairy was his passion!)

  8. Beautiful fence and countryside photos. You are lucky to be able to visit clients outdoors, better than all the time in the office.

  9. beautiful countryside. i grew up in wisconsin (america's dairyland). hardworking folks, those dairy farmers. :)

  10. Wonderful views with nice fences Shane. I've always added one versatile lens to my camera that goes from close ups to distance. 18-270mm I'm too lazy to change from a close range lens to a distance lens.

  11. Oh the back roads of New Zealand brings back memories of driving roads such as this many years ago.

  12. The pictures are great
    It looks so peaceful

  13. Shane~
    Such wonderful photos and a lovely tour of your side of the world!

  14. Beautiful trees, fences and awesome green all around!
    Great snaps.
    Have a Happy Weekend!
    Peace :)

  15. You have the perfect job in my book! I really hated working in an office all day even though I could go home to the dairy farm. Love the cow!

  16. Wonderful fences and country scenes. Is it me or does that tree in the last shot remind anyone of a "horse head?"

  17. Dearest Shane,
    Happy for you to have a field day with such perfect autumn weather.
    Sending you hugs,

  18. Dear Shane,
    thank you for those wonderful pictures from New Zealand's fences!
    Wishing you a happy and wonderful weekend, my deear friend,
    Love , hugs and Blessings to you,
    Claudia so

  19. Such peaceful country roads and lovely pictures. About the camera.....I have a Canon Power Shot, and the zoom-in lens is amazing. Jess has a Canon Rebel, and her close-ups always captivate me. Hope that helps.


  20. I love that fence - it would be fun to recreate in fabric I think.
