When Is Too Much Not Enough? – Part 1

Autumn in New Zealand is certainly in full swing. The riot of colours in many of the old gold mining areas is simply amazing. The range of photo opportunities is endless and range from wide panoramas down to a single leaf. I really enjoyed seeing complete hillsides covered in colour. The images show my attraction the colours. I guess there is always a choice, but for me I loved the vibrant palette so emphasised the colours. It was a case when too much was not enough!
