Photo Essay- Wellington from Mount Victoria

New Zealand’s capital, Wellington, can be viewed from a number of scenic overlooks on the hills that surround it. Probably the most famous of these is Mount Victoria, south of the city center. I’d visited this spot late on my first day in Wellington, but all of my pictures were badly back-lit, so I returned the next morning to capture the city from above.

    It really is very pretty up on Mount Victoria, isn’t it? Crack o’ dawn is one of the best times, because it’s quiet, especially in the winter.
