Mist in Hutt Valley
Upper Hutt woke up to find itself immersed in a heavy mist. Once above the mist, it was a beautiful clear morning, with the valley appearing to be filled with marshmallow. This is from Cannon Point, looking towards Te Marua, at about 8.30AM. Uploaded by: Sheryl Bates Date: 2nd Jul, 2009

Frozen Pond
Extremely rare – ice on an Auckland beach in the middle of the day.  “We found a skin of ice on a pond in the shadow of a hill at Karepiro Bay on the Okura walkway just north of Auckland. What was surprising was this was at sea level – and in the middle of the day”. Uploaded by: Richard Stanton Date: 4th Jun, 2009

 Morning Magic ~ Hokianga Harbour
Early morning sea-level fog beginning to rise above the Hokianga Harbour, viewed from Omapere. For a while the harbour appeared to be ‘steaming’, until the spectacular cloud lifted to reveal sparkling waters and a fine sunny day ensued! Uploaded by: Moirai Studio Artists Date: 4th Jun, 2009
