Very beautiful picture!!
The caves on the South Island of your country are very beautiful. I was in the Te Anau glowworm Caves. The boattour was great. Is that the cave you meant?
New Zealand is very beautiful . We stayed on the South Island.
Have a great day.

What a beautiful photo! I love the simplicity that black and white adds to this image. Is this a fern fiddlehead?
