[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is is Wild West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand,just a few kilometres north of Greymouth.
Greymouth lies exactly on the opposite side of the island to the Canterbury city of Christchurch.
Much of this coastline is rich in mineral resources such as gold,greenstone and coal.
The climate is temperate to nearly subtropical and very very wet.The road follows the coastline around the point in the distance.
The place we are moving to at the end of May is in the next bay,just around that point.

Nice photo Steve. Perfect composition, nice atmosphere. I was on east coast of Italy last week, but the slopes of mountains were dry and with sporadic vegetation. Nevertheless I found some interesting orchids there :-)

Excelent shot, Steve.
A beautiful view and well done on the composition.
Excelent work.

I like the shot very much Steve,
I can almost feel the atmosphere, the very good point of view is nice with a fantastic depth in it, great composition. I think when you made more of these you get an invitation from the local television, it's mean as a compliment,

Definitely the Wild West. Cold and windy and what a beautiful green bush to go wild in Steve. Excellent scene...

Very impressive shot Steve,
That's a lot of coastline to get some amazing shots. Very nice composition. Wise choice, moving to an area like this. A stunning place.
Thanks for posting

Beautiful landscape and coastline, Steve, I am feeling just a little envy right about now. This is a well captured image and has a great POV. Thank you so much for sharing it with us and good luck with your move.

Nice shot Steve. You have captured our West Coast on what looks like a blustery day. Lots of sea spray. Good thick rich bush. I like the POV. Good work. Thanks

I like your photographies, but this in special, has great interest, harmony chromatic and a perfect one and balanced composition
