Nelson Cathedral
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 3/47Score: 70.7% (31)7565 views

Nelson Cathedral (completed in 1930) is build of grey marble from the west side of the Tākaka valley. Although Tākaka marble has been used in a number of public buildings, Nelson Cathedral is the only building entirely faced with this distinctive rock.
In 1851 the first church was erected at a different site. In 1866 the church was named as Christ Church Cathedral. In 1887 a second church was constructed at the current site using much of the same materials of the previous cathedral. In 1925 the current church construction began.
The cathedral has seating for 1,200 people. It is 58 meters in length and 27 meters wide. The tower is 35 meters high.

Nice in B&W, few blown highlights in the clouds on the right but I like it just the same

Thanks, I realise I have blown highlights, but shooting almost straight into the sun, it couldn't be helped.

Melrose House - Nelson - created by friiskiwi


Melrose House - Nelson
Favs: 0SBS: n/aHi-resRank: 13/47Score: 62.8% (0)3756 views

Melrose House was originally built about 1879 for Charles Fowell Willett Watts. Charles came out to New Zealand aboard the Will Watch in 1841 and worked as a surveyor for the New Zealand Company.

After his death in 1881, Melrose became the home of his daughter, Francis and her husband Percy Bolland Adams, a prominent Nelson lawyer. It was at this time that much of the planting of the grounds was carried out by Mr Adams’ man-servant, Joseph Busch.

Garden parties were held in the rose garden at the back of the house where Melrose Terrace runs today. Percy and Frances had one son, Noel Percy Adams, who eventually inherited the property. His wife became very interested in the Women’s Division of Federated Farmers - and was at one time a Dominion President. This association was acknowledged by Colonel Adams when he arranged for the Women’s Division to have use of the property, and for a number of years the W.D.F.F. used the house as a holiday-rest home.

The property was gifted to the Nelson City Council for the use of the citizens of Nelson. (5 years and 1137 days ago)

The color desaturation, with a bit of yellow overtone, does not compliment this building well, It all looks somewhat washed out and bland. The color contrast of the foliage and those wonderful storm clouds in the background would have done a wonderful job of accentuating the building. As is, everything just kind of blends together, with too much unity, and no real dominance.
