Once a month Paula invites us in Thursday’s Special where you can pick one word or all and post one photo or many. The five words this month are : mountainous, whiskers, crumbling, spanning, immaculate.
The grounds outside Dunedin Railway station were immaculate.
With the immaculate garden beds planted in black crumbly soil creating perfect blooms.
Spanning time, we were greeted by two immaculately dressed train employees. The man’s whiskers the perfect length to go with his costume
We arrived early as we didn’t want to risk missing the train by a whisker so we explored the interior of the station finding it as immaculate as the outside.
Another feature of the train which also spanned time was the different types of carriages.
We headed into a mountainous remote region.
Several viaducts span the gorge and the Taieri River.
The Wingatui viaduct is the largest wrought iron structure in New Zealand with a span of 197 metres. It must have been an engineering feat at the time it was built (1887) as it is 47 metres tall. The rivoted lattice structures stand on cement piers.
In places it looked as though the mountainside was crumbling. Loose rocks dotted the steep slopes.
In other places it had clearly crumbled away.
In response to Paula’s Thursday’s Special.
