  Railway bridge

From Canterbury to Greymouth is a road you should consider taking if you're in the south island.
After traversing the plains of Canterbury, here the road starts to ascend the alpine country that is such a mecca for tourists.
This shot is taken overlooking the railway bridge which is another means of transportation you could utilize if you want to cross the island. There's a long tunnel that negates the need for the twisting and winding of the auto route so, if you want to do it in laid back style, you might consider the railway as an option here.
