Kaikoura Sunset

Last weekend I had a trip to Kaikoura, always a lovely place to visit and even more fascinating following the recent earthquakes. The roads are still being repaired but the journey is pretty good now. The foreshore has been uplifted by the quakes and looks different but still very beautiful with the sea, rocks and mountains.

Moria Gate Arch

I took a trip last weekend to Karamea in the north west of the South Island, a place I had never been. A lovely part of the country with so much to see as long as the sand flies can be avoided. This is an image from Moria Gate Arch, one of several large limestone river arches in the area. I spent quite a while looking around and no doubt I will show a few more images here over the next few weeks!

Punakaiki No.1

The pancake rocks at Punakaiki are fabulous and when the waves crash in and the sea sprays up through the blow holes it can be spectacular. On this visit my timing was off but the sea and rocks were still fascinating.
