Wellington Christmas Tree 2012

The day before Christmas Eve Rich and I decided to head down to Waitangi Park to check out the city Christmas tree.

The weather was exceptionally weird on this day for Wellington - we live in a very windy city so in general fog and cloud doesn't sit around for long.

But on the day before Christmas eve there seemed to be a whole lot of very low cloud around - in fact it closed down the airport for some time and people who were traveling for Christmas couldn't come into or leave from Wellington.

I decided to take some pictures on our walk as the city rarely looks like this - in fact I thought the tree looked rather like something out of Bladerunner in these photos.

Wow, I had heard Wellington was foggy, but i hadn't imagined this! And then it got super-heated for Christmas, I know - I was driving around seeing family in a car with no air-con!

Sorry for those travellers, but I like the effect the fog has in your images. Makes everything feel so silent.

I love the futuristic tree, the fog not so much! We've had loads of it this winter, coupled with torrential rain and wind. I can't wait to escape! xxx

That tree is brilliant. Hope the fog has lifted now though. xxx

Wow, the tree does look very Bladerunner! What interesting weather. I can't imagine it's very nice to be in though.
