Images from the Wairarapa and round about

Our home is in the Wairarapa, north east of Wellington at the bottom of te Ika a Maui - North Island.

The landscapes in the Wairarapa are quite different from those on South Island. However, the Wairarapa shares with Central Otago the propensity to produce fantastic skyscapes — the result of warm moist air from the Tasman Sea being blown over the Tararua range, which shelters us from the west.
