If you've ever wondered what heaven looked like, this might be one of the closer renditions the earth has to offer. The photo does offer a good depiction of what I saw in person, but there is something to be said for having seen it in person.
In the two years I've been in Dunedin, this is the first time I've ever seen this phenomenon. Potentially the weather patterns from the north clashing with those from the south? A few hours before, where I was standing to take this picture, was covered in cloud. I feel quite fortunate to have seen this cloud sea while it was still flowing over, and around, the hills of Dunedin.
