Taken near the Three Sisters in the Tongaporutu area.

I had finally left Wellington earlier in the day after some travel mixups involving campervan rentals and whatnot. Driving northward towards Auckland, I headed towards Taranaki with an original intent to try to get a view of the mountain. Due to the absolutely horrid weather, I decided to press on to see the Three Sisters. Upon arriving in the area, I was not able to get any decent shots at all due to the fog and rain. It was while wandering around the fields trying to find a decent vantage point when I came upon this abandoned bathtub being used a water trough for the cows. It was getting dark quickly as this turned out to be a 30 second shot manually focused without decent reference points.

I am pretty happy with the result and hope you enjoy it as I went through a lot of poo (literally!) to take this picture. =)

    totally bizzare. Beautiful as is and also has great potential for strange fashion or conceptual shots.

    For the first sight it looks ordinary, but than you understand that it has something very special. Good work.
