Midwinter evening, Pohangina valley

Last week I walked up the No. 1 Line track late in the afternoon. By the time I reached the top the light had begun to take on a warm tinge quite at odds with the actual temperature. I didn't stay to brew tea, but headed back down after just a few minutes. By the time I reached the car, the afternoon had turned to evening. This was the view from the road, looking roughly north along the southern Ruahine Range.I just had to stop for a minute or two.

How lovely, and it looks mild and warm, so perhaps the camera may lie?

Beautiful light in a beautiful place!

RR, given the temperature, the camera definitely lied.

Thanks Maureen. I was up there again today; earlier in the day, so I had time for a brew. The light wasn't quite as spectacular, but still lovely. Just as cold, though.
