Waimakariri River Gorge

The lighting was just beautiful at this time of day but an hour earlier may have been better. Perhaps another day.

Rage in the gorge

What a difference a day makes ... this was taken less than 24 hours after "Waimakariri River Gorge" (below, 16 May) and was a result of "Storm in the catchment" (below, 17 May). Standing on the bank while metre high waves thunder past was an awesome experience that helps one appreciate the power of water in motion.
