Stone Hut In Tiroiti

I drove past this hut a great many times always wanting to photograph it, until this day when the setting sun blazed such glory onto the schist stone I couldn’t stop myself. It was just a moment in time, a few minutes and it was over. The backcountry of New Zealand contains a heritage of over 1,400 huts that is unequalled anywhere in the world. These huts were built for shepherds during sheep mustering, wild animal control and prospecting amongst other purposed. They’re dotted around remote areas and have great historic and cultural value.
