The top of Wainuiomata Hill
Over Soames IslandLooking over to Wellington on a windy, late summer day from the viewpoint at the top of Wainuiomata Hill. This is on the main road over to Wainuiomata from Lower Hutt (now with 4 lanes though I can still remember the traffic jams when there were only 2 lanes). Soames Island pokes into the picture on the right with a patch of bush contrasting with the sun-burned grass.
