Wellington International Airport is the third busiest airport in New Zealand. Strange in some ways considering it is the capital city. It has a reputation for having rough and turbulent lands due to the channelling effect of the Cook Strait (the sea between the two islands) creating strong and gusty winds. This photograph was taken from Mount Victoria looking south towards the seemly short runway. On the left is Evans Bay and on the far side is Fitzroy Bay and on to the Cook Strait.
