Writing inspirations – the magnificent Buller Gorge, in mist

Today’s writing inspiration is a photo I took of the Buller Gorge, one damp day.

The gorge and river are both named after Charles Buller, the first pakeha explorer to venture into the district in the early 1840s. The original name of the river, Kawatiri (meaning, among other things, ‘deep swift’), is seldom used these days. It is a magnificent place where the prevailing cloud and mists add drama to a spectacular landscape. An inspiration by any measure.
