Views from Halfway Bush Road, Dunedin, New Zealand

Lovely weather today and we had a wander at the end of Halfway Bush Road and enjoyed the long-distance views. We could see snow clad mountains, the Taieri Plains (still a lot of water hanging around down there after the recent floods), Saddle Hill, and also out to sea. All photos taken with my cellphone camera.

Halfway Bush Rd becomes a rough lane with sea views out to the left, Saddle Hill centre-left, the Taieri Plains to the right, and the snow clad mountains are out-of-sight (WAY round to the right).

I held the camera above a farm gate to take this photo out to sea. Very small island just offshore.

Taieri Plains. Fertile agricultural plains but prone to serious flooding when we get a lot of rain (as we did last week – the Taieri suffered record floods).

Snowy mountains in the far distance.

We turned around to return to the vehicle and I was entranced by the beautiful clear blue sky. Such a treat after all the grey, wet, winter weather that we’ve had recently.
