Earth Day 2013

For my contribution to Earth Day, I’ll take you to one of my favorite placesthe lush, verdant, gently-rolling hills of Banks Peninsula, which extends out into the Pacific Ocean from the east coast of New Zealand’s South Island just below Christchurch.  It was formed by two ancient volcanoes, one side of each of which has long ago eroded away so that their central craters are now harbors that connect to the sea.  This is a view of Akaroa Harbour, the more southerly of the two, looking toward the southeast, from near Hill Top.  I made this image on slide film in January 1995.

      Thanks! It really seems like a timeless place, and I delight to have found it pretty much unchanged each time I’ve been able to return. Except for once when it snowed!
