Taken by Main Road beside the Coastal Pathway.
My view! Not bad huh. A beautiful sunset over the Heathcote river. It’s been a hot day with a nor’wester wind – which usually guarantees we get a lovely sunset.
As you can see the polar blast has delivered, with our mountains getting a good coverage of snow. Even the Port Hills had a dusting of snow on them today. As you can imagine, it’s cold, too cold for April in my opinion. We still have six weeks left of Autumn, so winter can just go away for now, I like my sunny Autumnal days too much and am not ready for hat, gloves, scarf and thermals!

Looking over the estuary at Ferrymead at dusk
The day ended with a lovely sunset.

I took a drive up to the Summit Road around dusk as I keep meaning to go up there and do some photos. I knew the sun set was not going to be amazing – as we didn’t have a nor’wester wind today. But this spot in the Port Hills is stunning in all light and weather.
A lovely light this evening as the sun set with layers of hills and mountains in the background.
And looking down to Ferrymead and the estuary.
