In a country that is renowned for clouds, and even having the nickname of ‘the land of the long white cloud’ there is always a few clouds hanging around, or, as on some of the days of our most recent holiday, more than a few.
Unfortunately, these were not snow clouds as my grandchildren had hoped. They saw snow for the first time, but it may have been all that more special if it had snowed while they were there.
This day, was, for a while, dark and gloomy. The rain threatened but never came.
This was a day of sporadic sunshine and a cold breeze
This was one of the better days, with sunshine in winter, and some spectacularlandscapes on offer for keen photographers
This day had the odd lonely cloud hoping to make an impact
or clouds that just skimmed the surface of Lake Taupo at sunrise
