Walter, this is a wonderful photo, especially with the dusting of snow on Mt Wellington.

Thanks for the compliment, Jim. I couldn't resist taking this shot with the snow-covered mountain in the background. Boy, was it cold down on the River Derwent, too! There was a very cold north-westerly blowing.

I was there to photograph the Helga which was in at Risdon and I saw Petuna heading for sea. The Helix was also leaving Self's Point at the same time so it was busy on that section of the river.

Tassie was there, too, taking a few shots. I notice he has posted a couple of his shots of Helga. We had a brief chat and then went our separate ways.

Cheers!

Walter

good to hear that you met another member Walter, keep up the good work, weather here this last two days have been very cold, I think we are getting Tassie weather just now.

All the best.

Jim.
