This Moment - 6WS - SIMC - First Snow


The first snow is always exciting

It rarely snows in Wellington so when the hills get a sprinkling of snow it's always so exciting.

Today is the first official day of winter but I think winter came last week. It was so cold.

But the hills looked so beautiful with the snow.  I took this picture from my workplace. By the time I got around to taking it, some of the snow had already melted. Still pretty though.

The hills behind Eastborne


This is the moment 
This is the time 
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment 
This momentous moment ..

A simple, special, extraordinary moment 
A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

  6. We're passing ships. Last weekend we had (what I hope will be) the final snow of the season. Today, sunny & actually almost hot, feels like summer's premier (we almost never have Spring here in Vermont).

    1. Hi Ron, Yep I enjoyed the hot weather while the Northern half was freezing to death - I guess its our turn here down under - hopefully not a long one or a freeze to death one!

  8. Beautiful -- such a gorgeous vista!

    It's too hot here for me (New Jersey USA) so I wouldn't mind a little more of the white fluffies. But everything in its season, I suppose.

    Enjoy the day :)
