Winter Views from the South Island.
Getting outside in Winter here is usually tough. Unless you’re a shredder of the epic pow or a tough-cookie mountain biker/ runner you usually burrow down until about November and come out looking and feeling a bit bewildered. BUT this Winter has been slightly warmer than usual (yay Climate Change….not) so the need for gloves has been select and camera missions (i.e. nipping out of the car leaving it stranded on some leafy lane) have been plentiful.
I recently travelled down to Glenorchy (how did I forget you?) where we stayed in an amazing new accommodation Tukuwaha. We also got our camera’s out and snapped all the way there. Winter has to be the most amazing way to see the mountains. Fresh dumps of snow are white, perfect and plentiful. It may have been a little later this year but they still smack you in the face with their beauty. I walked through the town of Queenstown last week and had to stop and just stare at The Remarkables shining over the town. What an epic place this is. The South Island of New Zealand continues to blow my mind with it’s beauty. Soon to come on my travels Christchurch, Nelson, Oamaru (oh how I’ve missed you), Dunedin and Riverton. Let’s go!
Our SnappersQueenstown group has had a few failed attempts at meeting with the rain but one great session was up Skippers Road before it shut! Come join us!
I’d love to see your Winter snaps. Leave there here or comment about your best place to take photos!
