Deaths Corner – Arthur’s Pass

Just up from the Otira Viaduct is the fantastically named “Death’s Corner”. Like with my previously published photo of the viaduct I included a car to give the photograph a sense of scale. Just before the tunnel you should be able to make out a white Morris Minor if you look closely. Behind the car is a huge concrete slope to funnel a waterfall over the road and into the river below. I think it would be very exciting to see this view in winter as this was taken in at the end of a very dry summer.
