Mood and Mist
My imagination ran riot as I made my way through this flax forest near the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks on the West Coast. It was all mood and mist - just the sort of landscape where something prehistoric and dinosaur-like might rear up and confront you. I wouldn't have been at all surprised - but I was rather taken aback when I walked around a corner and came face-to-face with a tourist carrying a purple umbrella. Some things you just don't expect.
