{postcards from the whakapapa holiday park}

here in the southern hemisphere christmas day is drawing to a close.

i am a sucker for afternoon light

skis hang in an orderly fashion in the rental window at whakapapa ski field

even the ski lift chairs get a holiday

the snowmaking machines all stand around idle, waiting for winter
