Out the window No 2 by maggiemae

Out the window No 2

This morning the wind was bucketing our caravan around’; the poor black swans had given up trying to find food; the picture out of a side window showed a furious lake bashing itself on the shore and bushes going sideways! But rather beautiful I thought!
Three good things:
1. At the next stop - found out that everything was operating off our battery! Then John pressed the right button on the campground’ s power connection! Our poor auto satellite connection got renewed hope in finding connection but - no! Too many trees.
2. Playing ‘Whispering Hope’ on our stereo - I do love this - hope that our distant neighbours didn’t hear me harmonising!
3. John got a call from some visitors to NZ from California who had been given his phone number from the Museum in Invercargill - they came out specially for Burt Munro connections. Met them in Gore and they were very happy!
Nice view

Wow, those are some waves. Beautiful scene.

Would be a beautiful scene on a calm and sunny day !! the water does look in turmoil and I can see the grass almost horizontal as it is blown in the wind . It sound as if you are having quite an adventure in the c/van -- keep having fun !!

Neat framing and light in this shot

@alophoto The lake is very shallow, Amanda and so gets quite rough when there is wind!

@beryl When the lake is calm it is beautiful Beryl- good for sailing. Because its shallow the wind and water stir up the mud and it becomes brown!

The water does look a bit choppy! Great view, though.

Love the capture of the waves and definitely get a sense of a strong wind...pretty scene

Looks like you have our kind of weather, except maybe warmer and no snow. one can see the wind blowing and and churning of the water. keep warm.

What a beautiful view to wake up to.

What a gorgeous view!!

Beautiful view and wonderful lighting! I like seeing the crashing waves!
November 22nd, 2016  
Tempestuous but, wildly beautiful....
November 22nd, 2016  
You are seeing some awesome scenery outside those windows. This is another beauty.

@dsp2 And we heard them crashing so closely to our caravan but because it was nature, I suppose, it didn't bother me!
November 22nd, 2016  
Looking very windy out there Maggie!Even so the scenery is spectacular.
November 22nd, 2016  
Beautiful view and grand framing...Fav
November 22nd, 2016  
Great shot of the storm through your window. What a view!
November 22nd, 2016  
You're still learning then re caravan! So much to learn on these upmarket modern machines! The wind rocked you to sleep then, quite romantic! I like looking out on a wild scene when you're snug & warm inside! Which lake is this?
November 22nd, 2016  
@happypat Its Lake Waihola, Pat. About 1/2hr south of Dunedin. It was a bit like being in a boat with that wind on the caravan!
November 22nd, 2016  
Your out-the-door/window photos are great. Love the framing. It's like this whole world awaits the viewer to take that first step.
