View From The Cab, our regular look through the windscreens of the Tachoblog Tribe is back.

Due to circumstances beyond Tachoblog’s control, there wasn’t much (well anything) from us last week.  But the Tachoblog Tribe still sent in pictures for View From The Cab so there’s no way we wouldn’t use them.

This week we start View From The Cab in New Zealand.  That means it’s time to join Vic H who ‘liked Darkstaff’s vineyard photos last week. Here in NZ our seasons are opposite to those in the Northern Hemisphere so this is what our vineyards look like at the moment, taken as I was loading wine at a winery in Hawke’s Bay’…

…’On the way home, as I was approaching Auckland in the late afternoon, the ash cloud from the Chilean volcano was still showing itself and trying to obscure the sun’.

Finally we go back to America where Amishtrucker took this View on the ‘Beltway southbound at Westpark in Houston early morning. I like the cloud bank in the distance. Actually ran into rain as I continued on south.  Note the church there on the left in front of the taller office building’…
