This afternoon Sarah and I went walking in the hills behind the town of Helensville (about 40km north west of Auckland city). It was a sunny but cold afternoon, a brisk breeze was blowing but it felt good to be out in the fresh air. Stupidly I left my camera in the car so couldn't take any photographs on our walk but I took this shot at the end, looking back towards the sheep-dotted green hills. As you can see, some dark grey clouds were gathering - about an hour and a half later there was a huge downpour! Luckily we were safe and dry.
