Cook Strait: Above the Clouds


Across four days this July, I was lucky enough to attend the NZ Model United Nations event held in Wellington. One of the spin-offs of flying up to the capital was taking in the views of a spectacular sunrise near Cook Strait in the early hours of Tuesday morning. I was both especially fortunate and unfortunate in that the timing of the trip meant a cold front had enveloped the city, bringing heavy rain, severe gale southerlies and allround wild weather to the area. These conditions, despite being dreadful at ground level, were an absolute delight from the sky! Thick, grey altocumulus hovering before a clear sunrise backdrop. It was an amazing trip, despite the debatably weather patterns!
