Red Net and Blue Sky

At Riwaka. Another shot here. The red nets are to keep the birds out.

[Erratum] As JB said in his comment, it is a shade cloth. He kindly gave us a link to Nelson Mail article. Thanks John!

  1. Wow, I just picked your photo out of Eric's portal as it really stood out. Absolutely beautiful! It reinforces my idea to move there! ;-)

  2. Such a dramatic scene, I really love this shot. What type of birds are they trying to keep out?

  3. It's SHADE CLOTH>

    The cloth is largely to protect fruit from hail, but also results in higher yields, larger fruit, less sunburn and wind rub, and helps to develop the red colour in apples.

    All in the Nelson Mail. http://stuff.co.nz/stuff/nelsonmail/3899837a6510.html

  9. Cheers Lachezar.
    It was installed at very large area.
    I need three shot to cover them completely. I decided not to stitch because of cloud formation changed dramatically on that day.
    This is about middle of whole and the left side is on my sketchbook.

  11. LOL, Merisi, may be any of them, since side is wide open and, as JB said, it was a shade cloth and not to block the birds.
