OK, first up for 2020.

Tuatara beer in the Qantas lounge, Auckland.

OK we were supposed to go to Wellington but it was windy. So we had some free beer, wine and cake and flew back later.

Now that it is dreary, wet and cold out, I have used these slow work days to shoot some household objects.

Not too exciting a photo, but it was a remarkable experience to go camping and discover entire mountainsides burned to black. And the bits of green regrowth so shockingly GREEN.Forest regeneration with burnt trees after the Donnell Fire, one year later. Darndanelle, Stanislaus National Forest on Highway 108, California.

Nothing editorial in this capture,

nothing commercial,

nothing even stock ( I guess),

but oh, boy,  how I love the colour and the mood...
