A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Antigua Boat Sheds


The Antigua Boat sheds are right in the heart of town and on the banks of the Avon River. It’s a popular place to go and rent a canoe, paddle boat, row boat, or be taken on a punt. This was taken on Saturday from the bridge over the Avon. It was a beautiful Autumn day and everyone was making the most of it. I’ve added a bit of a sepia wash to this image to make it a little more atmospheric!

    I like the effect that you put on it — makes it look like a frontier image, rather than a modern, touristy thing 😉

    Looks and sounds like great fun though!

    I remember ponting down the Avon River and it was such fun. It was a wonderful memory of Christchurch.
