New Zealand: views from the Interislander

with 6 comments

The first time on the recent trip that we took the Interislander ferry, from the North Island to the South Island on February 18th, the weather was grey. We had better luck going back across the Cook Strait to the North Island on March 3rd, as you can verify in the picture above.

And here’s a look down at the churning water alongside the ferry:

  3. That’s a far cry from the Bolivar ferry. I’m especially taken with the way the wind is made visible in the first photo, both on the water and in the clouds. The symmetry is beautiful.

    There’s something almost hypnotic about watching a boat’s wake, whether from the bow or the stern. I’ve spent plenty of hours staring down at scenes like that second photo, and it never gets old.

    • Oh, is it ever a far cry from the Bolivar ferry. If only the Texas coast were as scenic as New Zealand’s coasts.

      “Hypnotic” is a good way to describe the second view. I took a bunch of pictures of the roiling water, which entranced me. I can still see the three-dimensionaliity of the water in this two-dimensional photograph.
