Wow, what great scenery photos we received!

There are some very dramatic shots of Wellington's and New Zealand's landscape, from the rolling hills of the South Island the peaks of Makara.

James Shaw's photo of Lindis Pass, State Highway 8 in the South Island, captures the sharp changes in light and shows the expansive beauty of that part of the country.

Anna Wilton captured the rolling hills of Belmont Regional Park.  Her photo could almost be an illustration for William Blake's Milton a Poem, which has line 'Walk upon England's mountains green'.

Different shadows and light patterns were also a feature of Peter O'Carroll's photos.

Meanwhile, Patricia Reesby found tranquility in Seton Nossiter Park and Peti Morgan showed how weather patterns can make Wellington's hills and valleys look so different.
