Just been doing a short photography refresher for a local chap who was wanting to learn more about his camera in preparation for an overseas trip later this year.

I could see from Hastings that the weather was closing in on Te Mata Peak, so we took the opportunity to take a trip up the peak and get some snow shots and also cement some of the knowledge he had previously learnt.

Safe to say I have NEVER been so cold in Hawkes Bay.  The car thermometer was saying 1 degrees C, then with the windchill (of which there was plenty) it must have been into minus figures... Brrr....

Stay warm everyone!
