This is the old wharf in Kaikoura township. In the distance can be seen the Kaikouras - a mountain range which is basically the northernmost aspect of the Southern Alps.

Thanks for viewing.

Nice scene Martyn, well captured and presented

Hi Martyn,
Wonderful place, poetic atmosphere captured by you. I like the composition with the wharf, the water and the fascinating snowy peaks in the background, beautiful nature shot! Good clarity, TFS.

Hello Martyn,

Actually, I thought this was the Alps, at a glance!
I mean The Alps, not the Southern Alps!
A great scene, in blue, very well composed and with strong leading lines.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Martyn,
Great representation of New Zealand's natural beauty! A real post-card shot. Really well captured colours, the POV here is nice too. But the best feature by far is the picturesque background, really makes the scene in my opinion.

Beautiful view!

Hi Martyn

Looks like San Francisco Bay meets the Swiss Alps. And it's right in your own backyard, in NZ! The pier adds nice lead in lines. Good sharpness & composition. The snowcapped peaks make a fine secondary focal point. Tfs!

Hi Martyn

I like the original POV here with nice DOF
The details are fantastic with simple composition
Best wishes

Helo Martyn
Not match difrent than here in Europe
NZ and Europe have smiliar clima !!!!!!!!!

hi martyn
nice captur ... so clear ...

After yesterday it's nice to have some blue sky. The Alps in the background with some early snow is a nice backdrop, several layer to this composition, the old vacat wharf is a great eye catcher. TFS

Hi Martyn,

Great shot with beautiful Alps in background and this Pier sharpness in foreground. Lovely scenary with fine shadows.

Hi Martyn
I was Kaikoura in 2003, its a beautiful part of the east coast, I will go back down there soon.
Harsh midday sun, but you have some natural colours going on while the backdrop of mountains are beautiful. Well done
