Havelock Creek - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT

Panorama taken form the embankment by Havelock Creek near Karangarua at dusk. Mist was rising from the trees and shrouded the mountains to the east. It was getting dark and there was no-one around.

Havelock Creek, close to Karangarua on the West Coast of New Zealand, is just one of the many mountain streams that flow west on short journeys to the Tasman Sea. These streams flow over glacial alluvial plains and often either form, or join, other braided rivers en route. The are all crossed by Highway 6 on the journey north from Haast to Fox Glacier. The largest of them is the Haast River, crossed by the longest single lane bridge in New Zealand - the Haast Bridge.
