Skywatch Friday: Snow on Rimutakas

Today was a clear day and I could take some photos of

the snow-covered peaks of the Rimutakas near where I live.

The Rimutaka Range (often called the Rimutakas) is one of several mountain ranges in the North Island of New Zealand that form a ridge running parallel with the east coast between East Cape and Wellington. The ridge is at its most pronounced in the southern part, where it consists of the RuahineTararua, and Rimutaka Ranges.

C words Can Can

 

 

 

Can-can (sometimes non-hyphenated as in the original French: cancan French pronunciation: ​[kɑ̃kɑ̃]) is a high-energy and physically demanding music hall dance, traditionally performed by a chorus line of female dancers who wear costumes with long skirts, petticoats, and black stockings. The main features of the dance are the lifting and manipulation of the skirts, withhigh kicking and suggestive, provocative body movements. The Infernal Galop from Jacques Offenbach‘s Orpheus in the Underworld is the tune most associated with the can-can.[1]   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Can-can

2013 first snow!

Well, here we are,

suddenly in a full blast of snow.

I visited my friend at the foot of the Rimutaka Hills

Guess what?

There was some snow along the road side and

some snow on the roof and lawn of my friend’s place.

On the lawn and if you look at the trees on right hand side you can see a bit of snow

on the branches.
