Lone crusader ... A winter's knight ...
I took this photo of a landmark familiar to Dunedin-ites. Well, two actually. Both the snow on the hills landmark and the wee horseman.
The horseman was at one time the Arthur Barnett's store's neon advertising logo. Now he's just part of the Dunedin landscape. It seems no-one has had the heart to take him down. He gallops on and on through the days, heading east, but never arriving. (which apparently is a feature of heading east). Maybe he should have heeded the more well-known advice; "Go West young man".
Here is the history of the well-known phrase. (Info. taken from Wikipedia).
