Sublime. West Coast, New Zealand, South Island - 2/15/2012.
The enormous scale of the rugged coast line of western New Zealand invites us to contemplate our place in nature. There are small unspoiled beaches that one can just walk right up to and enjoy, then there are the steep and treacherous high cliffs covered in foliage where a person needs to watch where they step or risk truly becoming one with nature. Tall trees, clinging to life on the edge of this cliff brought only one word to mind... sublime.
