Our Winter Paradise on Sunset

Beautiful days with stunning sunsets, that’s what our winters are all about here on the West Coast – well usually.  After a huge front hit late last week it was great to get our “normal” winter weather back.

Talked Stephen into heading down to the beach for one more walk with the boys before dark.  Needless to say he came loaded with the camera gear – figured if has to follow “she who must be obeyed” might as well see if can get a photo or two.

Well get a photo or two he did.  While I continued on down the beach with the boys Stephen set up the tri-pod and headed up the creek to snap some shots…..

Not too bad eh!

Back up the track to the house and all was looking pretty good from here too.

Home sweet home – hard to beat our winter paradise on sunset.

      Ours was slow coming too – but arrived with vengeance now! Record high last night for NZ -20 at Lake Pukaki (near Lake Tekapo/Mt Cook). Gorgeous though.
