Otago Harbour on a GOOD day! by maggiemae

Otago Harbour on a GOOD day!

Visiting Dunedin for a necessary appointment with the Hospital, I took advantage of a restaurant that looked out on this scene! Lunch had lemon sole and thrice cooked chips. The fish tasted like whitebait and the chips were so crisp but soft inside!

Three good things;
1. I tried for a photograph to compare with Cambridge Universities and Judith ( @judithg )
with our great Otago University! Not the same depth of history. Will post that on my other album.
2. I did enjoy the day with my iPhone keeping me in touch with 365 and all the wonderful comments on my photos! Plus a book and my camera!
3. My head is going round with fuel economies on so many different cars including our own!
Gorgeous, fav

@panthora Thanks Osia for making your nice comments on so many of my photos! You knew the word, dendrology?
April 23rd, 2015  
@maggiemae It was a pleasure Maggiemae! I fell a little behind this past week, and had really missed your wonderful photos, along with some other people that I follow. I am making a serious effort to catch up this week, as if that is ever going to happen!
And, yes, about dendrology..... I grew up speaking Greek and Turkish, and most words have either a Greek or Latin derivation. I do pretty well with Greek words, at least in their basic meaning, even if I don't quite know what the actual science is. Dendro is Tree, so I figured it had to do with trees or woody structures! ;-))

@busylady No, Judith, it was the other photo I posted of the university street that I thought might be up to one of Judith's @judthg.
April 23rd, 2015  
@gamelee Thanks Lee for your comment - I was actually trying to get the luminescence of the water and ended up with this one.

What a lovely colour of sea, love the reflection of the clouds in the water and the old wharves. We Took Mum to NZ for her 90th birthday, as it was always her wish to go there and the actual day was when we were in Otago soI have fond memories of there. It is a most beautiful part of the world
April 24th, 2015  
@kelly2 That would be a great present for your Mum! She travelled at the age of 90?! Goodness!

Love the silvery blue quality of this, and the sense of depth. Fav, and congrats on the PP appearance.
