Photo Day - 48 - Akaroa Ramp

As with last week's photo this was taken while having a Summers picnic in Akaroa.

This photo is only a few steps away from last weeks photo, but looking off to the right giving a view of what was obscured by the launch.

Photo Day - 47 - Akaroa Launch

This photo was taken while having a Summers picnic in Akaroa.

This photo, and next weeks, were taken 11 months after the previously shown photos of the far end of Akaroa and the hills above Akaroa. There's quite a difference in the weather between the dates.

Photo Day - 46 - Victoria Square

This photo shows the view from the Farmers carpark looking North onto Victoria Square in Christchurch, New Zealand.

The yellow building in the top right of the photo appears to be unchanged from this 1910 photo of Victoria Square.

Photo Day - 45 - Tasman Valley

This photo is on the ridge of the Tasman Glacier, facing away from the glacier with the Tasman River to the left.

This is the sister photo to the photo looking at Tasman Glacier. I think it's the only photo I have of my travel buddy SJM, who was with me for all the July 2005 photos.

Photo Day - 44 - Otira Viaduct

This photo is of the Otira Viaduct joining the East and West coasts of New Zealand just after Arthur's Pass.

Looking at the Google Maps satellite view of Otura Viaduct you can see the road that this bridge replaced. While the incline, curvature and height of the bridge still make for an exciting journey it feels a lot less dangerous than the old road.
