Upper Takaka valley

This beautiful valley is called Upper Takaka and is around 10 kilometres north west from Motueka in the Nelson district at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. We were driving north towards Golden Bay along the when I came over the top of Takaka Hill I saw this beautiful scene. There was a very sharp, hairpin bend where I was able to pull of the highway and park the car. Looking over the barrier this was the view. You can see if you look closely at the bottom of the valley the road on the left side of the photograph, heading off into the distance. On the range of hills on the other side of the valley there was very different weather as you can see a rainbow if you look closely.
