Photographer's Note

One of the highlights of a visit to the West Coast of the South Island is this short walk through the Hokitika Gorge. Following a section of the Hokitika River, the track features the stunning colors of the glacier fed waters, surrounded by interesting granite rock formations and native forest.
The only thing spoiling the visit to this enchanting spot is the presence of sandflies which are persistent and can leave nasty little welts on one's exposed skin.

The use of the zoom at 270mm created a slight blur but the composition was my priority as I stood far away on the other side of the gorge.
