The mountains tonight as the sun was setting. We had a norwester wind today, which usually gives us interesting sunsets at night. No rain or thunder or lightening today!
I’m currently in the wonderful and scenic Tekapo which is in the Mackenzie Country which is about 2.5 hours away from Christchurch and not very far away from Mt Cook.
Today we drove to Mt Cook Village and did the Hooker Valley walk so we could get a close up view of Mt Cook (New Zealand’s highest peak) and also the Hooker glacier terminal. It was a hot day and lots of people were on the track. Stunning views in all directions and worth the walk in, which in places is not a board walk like pictured – but rocks or gravel that is a bit sore on the poor old feet after a while!
A somewhat ‘photoshop enhanced’ photo of the sunset from the deck, snapped by me about 10 minutes ago. I couldn’t walk fast enough back to the house up the hill to get the sunset at its best! Oh well, thanks to a long lens and photoshop I have at least captured something dramatic and interesting – well it is to me at least .
