View Over Holmes Bay - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This panorama was taken form the Port Levy - Pigeon Bay Road as it rounds one of the hills and gives a view over Holmes Bay from high in the hills. This is a very windy dirt road, with fairly deep ruts in places. Diriving is 'interesting', but the views are worth the effort. The picture was taken on an overcast day, and the next part of the road can just be seen winding round towards the coast.
