some random NZ scenery

Winter in New Zealand never seems desolate as the hillsides are dotted (and sometimes filled) 
with pine trees. I think it makes winter easier to bear.




But, Taranaki seems to be green year round...


...especially when it's warm enough for the snow to be gone!

What lovely photos, and I agree, a little bit of greenery does make winter easier to bare.

We are green all year around too. Must be all the rain and the closeness to the mountains also. New Zealand is a place I have ALWAYS wanted to visit. What is the name of the mountain?

What a thrill to see the views across the valleys and towards the snow capped peak!
The old barn was a real delight too!

Amazing photos! Those views are stunning. My neighbours visited New Zealand and didn't want to come home. Now I can see why :)

Looks stunning whatever the season. I love the clearness of the sky in winter.
