Made while travelling across the Hakataramea Saddle (North Otago, New Zealand) mid August, just as the seasons are starting to turn. Winter is very cold and dry here, as can be seen from the condition of the grass. Just before we reached the summit on our return home late in the afternoon, a storm cloud approached and cast some gloomy light over the scene. Quite apart from the harsh natural environment, the locals seem to take delight in firing shotgun blasts at the summit sign.
