Apologies for the long gap in posts. I’ve been unusually busy, something I’m not used to these days. However, I now have enough material for quite a few. Here is a start, some images from rivers in the Buller region.
The camera club had a field trip to Reefton. On the way I stopped off at the Ariki Falls, at the top end of the Upper Buller Gorge. It was a beautiful day and the river looked great.
What a contrast to my previous was when the river was in flood (which you can see here). The sky was clear, the water was the typical Buller green, and the granite rocks had been scrubbed clean.
You could almost hear the water fizzing from the aeration, over the noise of the falls.
The Inangahua River was very different. The following pictures are taken near a rest area at Tobins Bridge, about halfway between Reefton and Springs Junction. It’s a very remote part of New Zealand.
