Long White Cloud

The most widely accepted Maori name for New Zealand is Aotearoa, often translated as “Land of the long white cloud”.

The other day when I was on top of Mount Albert, I caught sight of that cloud, as shown above. Obviously, there were a few other clouds casting their shadows at the time.
