    Nice ones.

    Generally not a fish-eye fan, but these work well.

    NIce pictures. But as an expat Kiwi I have to say the title is deceptive...Wellington is the windy city Its not known for sunshine!!! If you want the sunshine capital of New Zealand you would have to be in Nelson or Blenheim( my vote would go with Nelson( you would get heaps better photos there). ( any Kiwis reading..yep I'm a one eyed Mainlander!!!)

    Edit Opps before some North Islander corrects me seems Nelson has been shouldered out by Whakatane as NZ Sunshine capital!!!

    Lol mate, a very interesting perspective on things :) I'm an Expat Brit living in NZ ( Hamilton - no jokes please ) and yes I'm fully aware of the windy nature of Wgtn as it is where our head office is located. It was kind of tongue-in-cheek referring to it as sunny - I was just making the best of a particularly nice day ! Cheers
