A return trip from Wanaka at Easter had Aoraki (Mt Cook) clearly in my sights. The plane window always adds a further haze - but it really was quite authoratative on the sky line, and easily seen for quite a while heading up the South Island to Christchurch after an intensely sunny weekend.
Its on the right of the image in the distance. I was as fascinated capturing the old school propellor.

Its always good to get a good view of Mt Cook - a nice anchoring constant!
This week, for the first time ever, I was treated by a friend to Lambs Brains: lightly poached, and topped with a salsa verte (chocca with anchovies) on toast. A Fergus Henderson recipe, and a great way to start a potential following of offal!
