Winter skies and sculptures in Taupo


Taupo, such a lovely place especially with it's snowy mountains and expansive lake. This particular morning we stopped by it was .5 degrees celsius - very nippy indeed. This sculpture is named Upane by Steuart Welch who is a farmer and owns a nursery at Marton. Apparently he started making farm gates from objects he found here and there. Now after many years he has progressed to making sculptures like the one above and exhibits in the central North Island of NZ.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday :-)

  8. Interesting sculpture. Does it represent something? I could only stand there for so long (it's cold).

  10. That sculpture is beautiful against the sea and the beautiful blue sky! I wonder if I would maybe not hate Winter so much if I'd lived somewhere like you do where the sky is blue even if it is cold! here in Oregon it was always so gray and wet and drizzly, bone chilling!
