Early morning near Ngamoko hut

I had all day to wander out over the Ngamoko range, so I took my time in the early morning, sipping tea, listening to the river, watching the endless rush and flow. I still hoped to see whio, but with so much else to appreciate and the knowledge they were there somewhere, perhaps circling on a pool or preening on a boulder just around the bend, disappointment was impossible.

You caught that gleam of gold on the water.

Yes, a magical golden glow on the water - really lovely. (Still surprised that you didn't have a quick dip, though!)

Kia Ora Pete,
What a place to be part of such moments. Hard to view it as time "spent".

Thanks for taking us there with you. What a beautiful place. I smile thinking of your statement "I had all day to wander out over the Ngamoko Range".... Love this photo. Maureen

Zhoen, RR, Robb, Maureen — thank you. It's a wonderful place; that whole upper part of the Pohangina river is very special.
