Back to winter, back to inner seeing

Apart from a recent posting of favourite images my last post was about the onset of spring. Well New Zealand’s climate is ever changing and we’ve had a dramatic change back to winter… Conditions were obviously 1st class on arrival at the Snow Farm car-park last Sunday… More snow than I’ve seen for sometime… I…
