‘Lasting for only a brief time……
Heading up the valley…. on the left the Forbes range.
The Rees valley winds back into the distance. What is really amazing is how the shape of the landscape changes the further into the valley you go. We visited this valley twice once on an overcast afternoon and then again the next day which happened to be bright blue skies…..
This is as far as we got in our not for wheel drive rent a car…..bitterly cold, incredibly still … the bush was amazing.
Down towards the antartic near the bottom of the south island is a small valley tucked away on the edge of Dunedin harbour. My brother’s house is perched on a steep hillside
Just down the hill from the house is a railway track running through the valley…. not too many trains, tho in the dark of night they rumble along with huge long loads of containers carrying them off to who knows where.
The roads up into the valley are steep and narrow….. the houses picturesque, the vegetation lush, luxuriant and mostly green.
The views of the harbour in constant flux…..
All in all a very fine day for a brisk walk …….with lots of gazing out into the harbour mostly to catch one’s breath!!!
