Travel Theme : Foliage

Looking for the Hobbits..


Foliage evokes memories and feelings of places visited and Ailsa’s theme this week is foliage.

Visit her blog “Where’s my backpack” and you will find many interpretations of this theme.

I have taken you back to March this year when we travelled around the South Island of New Zealand. This is the Haast Pass National Park. Dripping in moisture, the lichen, ferns and moss created an eerie, mystical atmosphere. The tree ferns rear above the under-growth and I looked around half expecting to see a Hobbit peering out at me. I look at this photo and I feel the magic.


Never say there is nothing beautiful in the world anymore.

  There is always something to make you wonder in the shape of a tree, the  trembling of a leaf.
Albert  Schweitzer
