Sometime last year I got talked into an all day bike ride, visiting the community gardens across Christchurch city, with Jen Rouse and Finn Le Seur. This turned out to be a good thing, as I ended up winning a voucher for two on the Big Day Out on the West Coast Wilderness Trail and thus dragged Jen and Finn along on mountain bike for a change! Was a lovely ride, with an obligatory stop at Cowboys Paradise, for that 'I'm about to be murdered and buried in an underground bunker feel!'

Reflections of ferns in a still creek

Confusing at this photo is, the absolute clarity and detail of the reflection to the sky in this creek by the track was just amazing.
