Picton – Stuck in Customs

Along the Coast Near Haast

Updated Cityscapes and a new Podcast

Over on my Smugmug, I just updated my portfolio of city photos. Since I recently finished my tour of the USA and got to visit a bunch of new cities, I figured it was time to update that portfolio! Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Along the Coast Near Haast

I took a road trip up to Picton with Ethan to get him in and out of Outward Bound. There are two ways to get up there, and I chose the one that was just about an hour longer so I could head up the west coast. It’s wild and raw and hardly anyone takes that path… It was my first time to notice this incredible area where the Tasman Sea is undercutting the forest. Amazing, eh?

Daily Photo – The Wood Comes Down the Valley

After I dropped off Ethan, I began a random drive around Picton and the north island to find some new scenes. Almost immediately, I came upon this tremendous logging operation. It was impressive to watch all these huge logs being dropped off and then transported to this ship. I assume (but not sure) that this ship then takes all of these logs to China.
