Photographer's Note

The harbour in Wellington. The industrial view, something rare in New Zealand. But I found it interesting too.
In the Māori language the harbour is known as Te Whanganui-a-Tara the great harbour of Tara.
The harbour is also used by inter-island ferries, linking Wellington to Picton.

The Interislander ferry is the longest running Cook Strait ferry service in Aotearoa New Zealand. Interislander sailings are between Wellington (North Island) and Picton (South Island). Our Interislander ferry trip is known as one of the most beautiful ferry cruises in the world. The Cook Strait ferry covers 92 kilometres and takes just over three hours. The journey between Wellington and Picton is one of New Zealand’s most iconic tourist experiences.

I took this photo from the Interislander ferry on my trip from the North to South Island. later I came the same trip in opposite direction. It was wonderful experience although the weather was not especially favourable in both times.
