Hut Completion for Andy Dennis
From left: Trustees Craig Potton, Eugenie Sage, Sarah Dennis and hut builder and friend, Rob Brown.

When Craig’s closest friend, Andy Dennis, died Craig lost a great mate, travelling companion, editor and writer. They conspired on books together, Andy wrote the text for, ‘Images from a Limestone Landscape’, and several other books with Craig. “He was just the best friend, full of life, wonderful language and a deep moral commitment to save nature”, says Craig.
With Andy’s sister Sarah, and close friend Eugenie Sage, Craig was given the task of building a hut with Andy’s estate. Their choice, high in South Westland Mataketake Range, reflected Andy’s love of truly wild out-of-the-way places that were fairly hard to get to. The forested Haast plains below the hut were the center of forest campaigns and a book Andy wrote ‘A Highway Guide to the World Heritage area, Te Wahipounamu’.

New Singular Image

Holy Mountain
“Close to modern day Chengdu (a city of 16 million people) is a mountain holy to the ancient philosophy of Taoism. I climbed the mountain one day and was surprised to come across a small man-made lake in a narrow gorge. A ferry boat took you to the far shore where a Taoist goddess greeted you as you disembarked.
 Taoism is a spiritual philosophy most in tune with the natural organic world.” - Craig Potton

Stunning New Diptych

   "Lake Mackenzie, a jewel in the crown of the Routeburn Track, was created by the landslide of forested tumbled boulders at the lakes outlet. When mountain mists stroke the steep surrounding mountains the scene becomes a tapestry of subtle greys and greens."
- Craig Potton
