Waking up to a hard frost on a winters morning in Christchurch I knew there was one place to take the camera. After a quick coffee stop I drove to the Christchurch Botanic Gardens. I hadn’t been here for years and never before in winter. The low winter sun had come up as we walked over the footbridge. Looking north this was the view of the mist rising up from the Avon River. At first I wasn’t going to share this photograph due to the cars in the carpark in the background to the right. It ended up being one of my favourite shots of the River Avon in Christchurch.
