Intrepid snow photographer Harro is in NZ capturing the early winter in all it’s glory. Here’s what he saw through the lens this week.

“Shots from Treble Cone resort with a strong inversion layer. When you get a south-easterly air flow, moisture gets pushed up against the mountains and it turns to fog. And a thick layer of cloud will get trapped in the valley of Wanaka leaving it gloomy and dark in town but beautiful up on the mountain in perfect sunshine, which creates a spectacular day of skiing.”

“By contrast, it is dull and gloomy in town. These shots were taken within half an hour of the shots from Treble Cone, big difference.”
