Photographer's Note

To take this shot, I took a train journey called the Tranz Alpine from Christchurch to Greymouth, literally from the east coast to the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand. The trip is 223.8 kilometres long and takes just four and a half hours. There are 16 tunnels, and 5 viaducts, the highest being the Staircase standing at 73 metres. There’s commentary on board and thankfully a couple of photo stops on route.

The photo comes from a scanned negative.


Pour prendre cette photo, j’ai voyagé dans un train qui s'appelle le Tranz Alpine de Christchurch à Greymouth (de la côte est à la côte ouest de l’île sud de la Nouvelle Zélande). La distance est de 223,8km et prend 4h30. Il y a 16 tunnels, 5 viaducs (le plus haut à 73m). Il y a du commentaire à bord et heureusement un ou deux arrêts pour faire des photos en route.

La photo vient d’une négative scanné.
