"Godley Head"

Photo showcasing some amazing colors at Godley Head.
Photo courtesy of Craig Gilder.

I am constantly amazed at the beautiful images I see from time to time of the widely-varied scenery of New Zealand, and today's picture by photographer Craig Gilder is a fine example of the type of photographs one can expect to return home with after vacationing there. What amazing colors! Here is Mr. Gilder with a few words about the image:
    "This photo was taken late one afternoon at Godley Head, the
    entrance to Lyttelton Harbour. There are some excellent views
    on this headland, which is one of the most popular recreational
    areas in Christchurch, New Zealand."
      --Craig Gilder
You'll find a lot more of Mr. Gilder's gorgeous photographs on his Flickr site.

    It's pictures like this that keep me coming back to this site every morning. I love how Mr. Rouse brings us little snapshots of our world that we would never get to see otherwise, and many of the "stories behind the images" leave me feeling good for days on end. Thanks so much for sharing!
