By the dawn's early light

As soon as I pulled back the curtains today I knew I just had to make a dash for the camera. Here's a few photographs of this morning's brilliant cloud-light in Wellington, as seen at 6.55am from Highbury looking eastwards towards the Rimutaka Range past Eastbourne. I think the peak pictured is Mt Matthews (941m), the highest point of the range, which sweeps northwards as far as State Highway 2 and separates Wellington region from the Wairarapa. (Click photos to enlarge).
