Rakaia River

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 16 June 2014 in Landscape & Rural.


this is the Rakaia River not far away from a town called Methven on the South Island of New Zealand... for much of its length, the river is a braided river, running through a wide shingle bed... however, it is briefly confined to a narrow canyon known as the Rakaia Gorge and this is the point where the river exits from the gorge...

sure it was the middle of the day - not my favourite time for photos - but the colour of the river was just too good to pass...
