Haast-Jackson Bay Road in Flood - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

This panorama was taken of the Haast-Jackson Bay Road shortly after a cyclone had passed over the West Coast and moved inland. After 25 hours of torrential rain, the area was beginning to recover from flooding which had closed the road. This panorama, taken late in the afternoon, shows the clearing skies and a car passing through the floodwaters.
