Photo of the day - 2015

A nice little rock garden in northern Banff N.P. - a small subalpine fir, Abies lasiocarpa, managing to hang on in a sheltered spot above treeline, with Sedum lanceolatum and Erigeron aureus:

Was in Tapanui , West Otago yesterday . The town is being americanised for the filming of Pete's Dragon starring Robert Redford and Karl Urban . The zip code 10651 doesn't exist in the US (must be a special one for movies?!) but 10650 is in New York state and I think Tapanui will become Millhaven , NY . I hope the film is set in winter or they may have to wait a bit to film outside

I auditioned for the part of a troll but dipped out because I was too ugly

Looks like it will be Millhaven in Washington state apparently . There goes my detective work on the zip code

Was back in the hills again last week
