Lichen on Paddock Fences At Earnslaw

The last of the paddocks on the way to Paradise is Earnslaw. The beautiful lichen here makes everything look a good few hundred years old. Some of the beech trees in the forests are 800 years old. In the distance looking soaring over the valley is Mount Nox (1,940m), Mount Chaos (1,995m) and Poseidon Peak (2,208m) where three provinces intersect; Otago, Southland and West Coast.
