Beauty is in the eye of the beholder … by golftragic

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder …

I've long thought this structure was a little bit rural Rothsko-esque. Finally (a) had time to stop, and (b) got the right light on the morning of Christmas Eve whilst on my way to collect our festive seafood. If China doesn't want our wonderful crayfish/lobsters we sure do.
Same here - we bought a crayfish for $35 for Xmas! Thats a really good price. Nice colours to make good layers in this shot!

This is great. On our way to Auckland, we pass a container storage area where they are stacked really high and there are so many of them. I am hankering after an image, but from the motorway it is somewhat tricky!

I like the solid lines of color, great texture too!

Knew this was yours.

Fabulous lines and colours! Unfortunately most of our crayfish get exported. We only get very small ones at ridiculous prices here now.

Great textures and bands of colour. The interesting over here with the Chinese ban our crayfish is that our major exporter is now Chinese owned and they can't export to China.

Good eye! Rothko-ish, indeed!

Fascinating - glad you stopped to capture it :) And i hope that crayfish was yummy! I had one for New year's Eve - delicious!!

Like the inclusion of the power line to somehow add to the story

I like the grasses that if left alone would just swallow up these containers.

@maggiemae Gosh that was a good price. Ours was around twice that much. Bloody tasty though, and a rare treat. When I was a lot younger crays were a treat, but not only for the rich. Then the rest of the world caught on. :(

@dide l know what you mean, there are several shots from the Ring Road fwy that I'd love to take but no hope of that. One of the industrial remnants has now been demolished. :(

@aikiuser Thanks

@ludwigsdiana Most of ours do too Diana, it's only thanks to China having a tantrum about Aussie imports that we have good ones available here at half-reasonable prices. I'd be quite happy if we stopped exporting our goodies overseas and the prices reverted to what was normal.

@merrelyn What a delicious irony. I believe the same is true for a Chinese owned coal mine. Mind you, I strongly believe we should stop exporting coal anyway.

@jetr Thanks Joan.

@gilbertwood I've been watching for ages and ages, so glad I finally got a chance to stop in good light. Crays, let's hope the Chinese continue their tanty so we can get to have one from time to time.

@jgpittenger Thanks Jane, I removed a whole lot of visual distractions but was of the same mind as you re the power pole.

@joysabin No chance of that, if the grass gets too long the fire authorities/council make the owner cut it for safety reasons.
January 17th, 2021  
Yes- very Rothsko indeed! Interesting story about the Chinese reaction to Australian imports. Of we have the Chinese to thank for one of the worst "exports" in history- the Corona virus.

@olivetreeann China seems to have decided to make an example of Australia so other countries can see what happens if you don't do as you're told (by them). They're putting huge pressure of all kinds on Oz, needless to say the main effect this is having is for us to dig in and stick to our democratic rights and principles. We are, of course, being punished too because of our close relationship with the US. They're not game to do the same to your country. Sheer bully tactics. But backfiring bigtime: damage to China's own economy and people, Oz is finding other markets and the rest of the free world is watching closely and doesn't like what they're seeing. Plus COVID too. Not exactly a friendly regional friend.
