Places remembered: Piako River(bank)

I am preparing for another extended (7-week) trip to New Zealand, starting tomorrow.  I’m very excited at the prospect and am eager to see what I’ll be able to share with you.  This scene is one that I photographed in September 2004, on my way to the Coromandel Peninsula, a drive of about 3 hours southeast of Auckland.  I hope to spend some of my time in this area, so I’ve chosen this to whet our appetites for opportunities soon to come.

Piako Riverbank 09-14-04We’re looking toward the northeast with the beautiful toe-toe (pronounced toy-toy) grasses, very similar to pampas grass, in the mid-foreground, along the banks of the Piako River.  More soon!
