What is our fascination for the white stuff?
Every time there is a hint of it at our place I become a 5 year old wanting to go out and play. Yesterday was no different. We’d had 2 nights of snow on the Maungatua ranges that Outram is nestled underneath and it was looking wonderful. So grabbed the camera and off I went.
Now I’m not a landscape photographer and these are only pretty much straight from the camera. I didn’t realise till now, just how much of a valley the Taieri is, with a ring of hills all around. You really feel that when they all have a cap of snow on top. Highlights the flat Taieri beautifully. Can only imagine what it was like years ago when they used to get ‘proper’ snowfalls each winter. I’ve only been in Dunedin for 7 years now and I have very much noticed that the winters are nowhere near as harsh as my first year here.
All these pics were taken within a 5km radius from our home. For this North Islander, it's great to live in an area that gets winter snow. Love it!
