/\ Margaret Mahy /\ Was out walking the other day with a friend of mine and we decided to walk around Governors Bay. Hearing a lot about Margaret Mahy's books when I was a youngster I have always wondered who this New Zealand great was. Many of her story plots have strong supernatural elements but her writing concentrates on the themes of human relationships and growing up. She wrote more than 100 picture books, 40 novels and 20 collections of short stories. At her death she was one of thirty writers to win the biennial, international Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her "lasting contribution to children's literature". Among her children's books, A Lion in the Meadow and The Seven Chinese Brothers and The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate are considered national classics.

As we walked around the bay we came across this rock with a plaque embedded into it with a short write up about the famous Margaret Mahy.

I held a long exposure on this shot to get a touch of cloud movement, also told my friend to move her head side to side to capture this effect in the photo. I personally love the colours I captured with the golden classic Governors Bay rocks and the mysterious moody clouds that rolled in on this sunset. We look out to find Lyttelton mid left of the photo.

Cheers for all the support guys and hope you enjoy this photo. :) Peace
