Those steadfast mountains

These mountains to the south of us remain steadfast even though we may go for days and days with them being covered in cloud.

We are going from warmer to cooler at the moment, including the first dumping of snow on the mountains.  Quite a few times recently, in the mornings, there has been mist rising from the Waikato River below us and with that and the low lying cloud over Lake Taupo, the mountains look like they are floating in the distance.

Even as I write the sky is changing all too quickly so it was nice to be able to capture the moment.

The mountains are pretty - a gorgeous scene to see every day.

What a beauty of a photo! I love seeing the mountains, that's something I miss very much about not living in Christchurch. Hope you're all well down in Taupo.
