The Protea is among my favourite flowers so I felt fully justified in getting carried away with my camera at Riccarton Rotary Market early this morning. I snapped these beauties just as the sun was peeking through the trees and landing on these spikey petals. The market itself was in fine shape this morning. It seems to get bigger every time I visit... it is, supposedly, New Zealand's biggest outdoor market and now attracts well over 300 vendors. It's just the place to hunt out a good bargain - or fresh produce and delicious cakes. I photographed a few of those too - and ate the rest!
