Christchurch from the Hills

20 Oct

This is my favourite view of Christchurch, from the lower hills to the South. Unfortunately, there’s large chunks of the hill roads which are still closed and unusable (because they are too damaged and dangerous) a year and a half after the earthquakes.

  • A view from Summit Road, with The Estuary in the foreground, the broad sweep of Pegasus Bay curving away to the right, and the Southern Alps in the distance.

  • This is the image before I fiddled with colour enhancements, cut down from a huge (170MB, 20026 X 3581 panorama stitched from 21 photos).
