Southern Ruahine from No. 2 Line

My usual bike ride takes me to the top of No. 2 Line, one of the dead end side roads leading (almost) to the edge of the Ruahine Forest Park. A steep climb in places, but the view's worth it, and coming down's fun.

I've always been a fan of your b&w photography and this just continues your stellar pattern. It seems to have a spirit of wide-openness, ruggedness ... I just really like it!

Thanks Leonie! It's actually a much steeper climb than it appears in this photo.
