In January last year we walked part of the track along the Siberia Valley. This small stream crossing the track in the beech forest called out to be photographed, but it and the enormous number of similar scenes throughout the mountains of Aotearoa have been photographed so many times it's hard to know whether adding to the complement can reasonably be justified. Consequently, I played around with the photo to make it (very) slightly resemble an illustration rather than a straightforward photo; in doing so, I trust it'll encourage at least some of you to imagine what might have happened, or might happen, somewhere around that bend where the stream issues from the unseen.
