It once kept some folks warm but the gold and the people are all gone. All that's left of a house at the old goldmining settlement of Waiorongomai is this concrete chimney stack in the middle of the farm paddock. I enjoyed the walks here and there are some of the old mining structures still to be seen in the bush areas. Great views over the Waikato from the Kaimais as well.
My goal is to present images of objects and places as naturally as possible with minimal post processing. I think the natural qualities will come through for the viewer with a little contemplation. Unfortunately there is little time for such things these days.
