I was super tempted to post another Milford image today – just to stir the pot on the tunnel news.  However, I am away on holiday and didn’t relish the prospect of  playing the role of  ‘burning sphincter through which a partially digested enviro-flamefest passed’ on a sunny winter’s day :-)  David has dutifully kicked off the debate over here though.

This image is another recent discovery from the archives that I used in our upcoming ebook (which will hit the e-shelves next Tuesday). Sorry about the PC-desktop unfriendly format, but I like this one a lot and just felt like sharing it.

Cheers – Todd

    Wonderful.

    Great to see a natural artist at work.

    True genius needs no pretension.

    Awesome!

    The South Island is so full of big rivers and big hills, that when you drive around it’s easy to lose your sense of the scale… until someone with a really really long lens helpfully pulls that distant high background in a little closer and makes it more obvious!

    (It’s a pity ‘Redbaiter’ has to ruin the discussion of every photo of yours, with some whiney-bitch comment based on his insane loathing of ‘chthoniid’. Every week, every photo, the same shit… what a little fucking wanker. You’d think he’d get over it eventually?)

    Great pic! Jeez I miss the South Island*

    *If it is still called the ‘South Island’?..I understand they are planning a stealthy name-change to ‘Te Waipounamu o Aoteroa’ soon?

    I have hunted Thar up there. Amazing country and bigger than it looks. You lose perspective of the distances due to the grand scale. You can walk towards a rock and it is no bigger an hour later.
