Trees Along the Avon River

This is the Avon River which meanders through the city. It’s very shallow, but deep enough for the punting companies to punt on. This scene is taken from Madras street, and the punters don’t come up this far. Right in the middle of the picture you can see the start of some of Christchurch’s high rise buildings.

    What a nice view. The sweeping angle of the river is lovely.

    A pretty stream at this point, it looks, just perfectly situated for the walker.

    Thanks for the nice comments! I’m really enjoying doing this site and I’m probably spending far too much time looking at everyone else’s photos. They are all just so fascinating and stunning. Michelle

    Beautiful view, very relaxing. This place must be stunning in summer. A belated but warm welcome to the CDPB community.

    Cheers from Boston!

    welcome to the world of daily city photo blogging… it has been a long time since I have been in Christchurch but I’m planning a photo trip around the South Island some time in 08 and I can’t wait to get back
