Arrowtown Frost

Have Some Things In Common?

There are these areas in Arrowtown that are covered in frost for most of the day during winter. Walking through parks or shaded areas on a frosty winter morning can be a really strange thing as you move quickly from areas of bright warm sun that heat relatively quickly to areas of shade that are still covered in frost with leaves that crunch under your feet like broken glass. The great thing about Arrowtown is that it has all sorts of paths and walkways to enjoy and they are just as nice in winter as they are in summer.

Historic Gold Miners Cottages

Till The Sun Does Descend

Following yesterday’s astounding autumn colours from Arrowtown and the Chinese Village by the Arrow River, here’s another autumn in Arrowtown image. Most of the images I see of the historic Gold Miners Cottages on the main street are fairly old, so I set out one day to create my own updated version. These cottages date back 140 years to the gold rush days and have been restored in the last years by the Department of Conservation.

By The Arrow River

The Echoing Path

I’m not sure Central Otago and the Lakes District have a bad season. Summer and Winter are seasons of extremes and are completely unique while autumn is full of colour, as it is now. There are so many great reasons to visit Arrowtown and the colour of autumn is definitely one of them. If you get a chance to explore the Chinese Village by the Arrow River then the autumn leaves, trees and colours will astound you. I was lucky when I took this photo as it was a fairly still day, meaning the only blur I had to worry about was from other visitors. Sometimes blur and movement is okay in photos but on this particular occasion I wanted everything completely still.

Tobins Track

Of Time Is Lost

The walk up (and up and up) Tobins Track in Arrowtown is an extremely worthwhile walk that rewards you with outstanding views of the Wakatipu Basin.  I did it with friends one hot, January evening in summer but half way up we got a little side tracked with a path leading to the crumbling remains of this hidden hut deep in the bush.
