I was visiting a farm in the Awatere Valley and idly wandered beyond the garden and the dog-kennels to find myself suddenly on the edge of a cliff of startling height – and this was the scene below. The sudden break and height of the cliff seemed to separate the scene above from the one below, and I had the feeling of being an intruder looking down into another world.
