Dart River by carlywilliamson Dart River by carlywilliamson
Dart River, New Zealand.

I spent an evening up in Paradise (yes that is the name of the area) and it was freeeezing cold! Wind frequently howls down through the Dart Valley, on dry days this can create mini dust storms that stretch all the way past the head of Lake Wakatipu. On this evening it was relatively calm but a cold breeze would come though now and then. I couldn't feel my fingers after a while!! :) Some Hereford cattle grazing in the paddock and along the river gathered behind me :lol: I think they were appreciating the sunset too!

its all so surreal, what with the name 'paradise' and all; the angle seems to lift the scape to an otherworldly level altogether...!

NZ is the definition of cold:p
I made it to the little village there but apparently i should have kept going onto a dirt road for another 20km or so? The drive from Queenstown to Glenorchy is quite impressive, even in the rain!
