Snapshot Monday: New Zealand

Some pictures from my home today - of a stunning black sand beach I visited yesterday.


Shell on the sand - you can actually see how the sand sparkles in this shot and the one following.


A piece of driftwood that reminded me of bones you might find in the desert.


The horizon is just endless - you can look for what feels like miles and not see any signs of civilization.


Looking out at the water from the sand dunes.


Looking back toward the mountains.


This last shot was taken as the tide was going out.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. What did you get up to?

Gorgeous pictures! I'd love to visit one day.
This weekend? Oh! the same as always: grocery shopping, house cleaning and reading.

It`s beautiful! ... And what did I? - I shoveled snow (The yellow devil of jealousy pulls on my hair:-)).

Beautiful! One of the best perks about my job is that for a part of the commute I'm right along the coast! (Not long enough!)

That looks so beautiful! We had a snowstorm in Toronto today, so I feel so nostalgic!

These pictures remind me why I've always, always wanted to visit NZ. Simply gorgeous! I love how isolated and natural it looks :)
