For all those sweltering in the summer heat, some cooling pictures of snow-capped mountains in New Zealand. They remind me of icy "sno-cones" from childhood. Do you remember those? Photos by Marie-Claire Holmes.

That's beautiful, but I prefer to keep out of the mountains in winter - it's cold enough down here on the plains :) She must have been high up to get those photos.

Breathtaking photos similar to our Canadain Rockies! hugs NG

Wonderful photos ... the mountains are elegant in their slope.

You picked the right day! It is hot and hazy here. Let's all jump into that cool lake...

This was EXACTLY what I needed. It's so nasty and hot here. Just seeing these pics was a refreshing treat.

I could use some of that cooling right now. Thanks for the snow cones.

New Zealand is gorgeous. I had a professor of geography in college rom NZ. He said that NZ had everything. Based on pictures I have seen, I would have to agree with him.

Oh I needed to see that today. It's hot!

I feel cooler already! Real Sno-Cones...make me thirstier! Must be all that dye and sugar! ha! (It's fun to see all the kiddies in the market with red or blue mouths and tongues after slurping down one of the cones! ) It is pretty darn hot..TOO darn Hot around here! Although..last summer was worse!

I never fail to be impressed by the majesty of snow covered peaks. The stark contrasts of snow, mountain and sky are literally breath taking.

Living in Florida, these pictures were a welcome relief from all the heat! Thanks, Tara!

How long will this beauty survive? In three weeks we will be driving south the western part of Norway, a route we drive every summer to visit family. This year we have planned a stop to visit one of the glaciers of Norway. We suddenly realised that it is important to show our 11 year old daughter a glacier when we still have them.

Wow! That is one place I just have to visit someday. Every picture I ever see of it, is just breath taking.

Thanks for the little taste of home. I'm in the mountains here in Afghanistan but they are so very different from home.

Stunning and so beautiful. So different than Alaska that I was in last week. But it's been surprisingly cool in the Bay Area. This time last year it was nearly 100*F. I'm not sure if it's even gotten into the mid-80s this week.

Ah! That's better :) Thanks for the lovely snowcones, Tara - they're beautiful - plus the added benefit of no calories, and no sticky hands (those pointy paper cups always seemed to develop a leak by the end). Thanks for bringing back fun (and cool) memories! XOXO

Oh, my. These are amazing. So powerful and elegant at the same time. I remember snow cones, but they weren't majestic ;D. Thank you for showing us these stunningly beautiful photos.

Thank you for the cooling images, they are just what I needed! 27° at 9am, 27° at 11pm. I ventured into the streets tonight, it was like walking in a pizza oven. All strength gone when I staggered back in the door. I thank the gods for my cool apartment. Is it as hot in Paris right now?
