This morning there was no frost, instead we had 3 Celsius, and these glorious colours, that proved so elusive. A minute, and they were gone. Looking South, right where the power lines are, snow is on the tops of the Tararua Ranges, which stretch from Palmerston North, southwards to North of Wellington.This is our view from the steps outside the dining room.A few birds flew overhead, as the sky slowly changed colour.
Last night there was a spectacular display of the Southern Lights, Aurora Australis , which was seen at its best in the far south of the South Island. Here is one photo, courtesy of Stephen Voss.This was taken from Sandy Point near Invercargill, between 11 p.m. and 12.30 a.m. The conditions were perfect for him to capture this stunning photograph.
