I like it. Nice and clean looking site. The title banner needs to be clearer though for me, by that I mean the lettering is being absorbed by the background.
Oh, and why link back to here you miserable git?
Give me time.
The banner is my photo but I can't find any way to adjust anything else in that department. (yet)
Should have looked harder Is that better?
Got quite a few typos though.
Mainly apostrophes where there shouldn't be.
Should be Moeraki Boulders
the apostrophe>s is used if it is an abbreviation, eg it's instead of it is, or if the word is a possessive, eg Stephen's piece of shit Nikon.
Sorry, my ancestors invented the language I get touchy about grammar lol
do you want me to proof it for you? I can have a look through tonight.
No worries, I'll email you later
With regards to your banner:
I have a site of my own, also in development. I use a custom banner for each section so I chose the one from my "contact/purchase" that best illustrates what I've done.
You can see here a custom photo took and fitted it on a 800x100 canvas, moved it until it was in a position I liked.
For my font I chose something clear and reasonably bold to allow easy reading. I then added a drop shadow to make it stand out from the greenery.
I'd be more than happy to donate some of my pictures for you to make a proper banner, I can make one for you as I have the .psd
template, I can send you the .psd so you don't have to figure out the font etc for yourself, or I can simply just tell you the sizes/font etc for you to do it yourself.
PM me either way.

I have a raging argument going with myself over image size
I'll think some more on title. Thanks for the offer Virus.
I agree with Jack re the Text
Some nice photos though. I need toget out of Auckland
Oh wait tried that...... ummm
Nice looking blog mate. Keep it going.
This any better??
How about this?
Yes It's a nice improvement to your old one. No problem with the offer. I'm honestly MORE than happy to help where I can.
That bl00dy Finster is meant to be proof reading. Not shagging about in PS
Yes - bigger and chunkier for more punch - a drop shadow adds a touch of class. Makes it look like you made an effort, yanno?
and re the apostraphe issue - no you don't need to add one whenever you have a word that is a plural - sadly its a common issue
it is = shortened to it's
its = the cat licked its fur - NO apostraphe
plural = cat vs cats - NO apostraphe
referring to ownership by a person of a thing = Stephen's piece of shit Nikon
There is a lovely book written about punctuation called Eat Shoots and Leaves - I think its by a Kiwi

You didn't use a capital! Bad pome, bad.
