Down Under

By cats_123  
Here we go.......back from a fabulous trip to New Zealand (and Bangkok). I've taken over 1200 shots so processing & filtering is going to be pretty slow, but glad to be back in the Northern Hemisphere.

We had a couple house sit for us whilst we were away so that our ageing cats didn't have to suffer 3 weeks in a cattery!!......I think they appreciated the gesture????

I'm covered in sand fly bites so if I stop to itch...I hope you'll understand!!!! GrinGrinGrinGrin

Hope everyone is well and I must apologise in advance for not keeping up to date.

So, to kick you off on a trail `Down Under', here is a view from the Skytower in Auckland. 192 metres above ground, standing on and looking through a glass panel GrinGrin

and before you ask, I didn't do the Skywalk!!! WinkGrinGrin

Welcome back and good luck on the image processing - I know what it's like - I always come back from Norway with way to much material - I'm still working through stuff from two years ago.

A sight to give one vertigo - how small and bug like people can look from a great height.
