An old house was here, Slaty Creek, West Coast, New Zealand

A lone chimney signifies a house has probably been lost to fire. The greenness of the West Coast is remarkable, but not surprising with the high rainfall in the region. Many farmers corrugate their pastures to assist with water drainage. With stoney pastures, the water quickly drains away efficiently. So efficiently that farmers become concerned about a lack of water if it has not rained for a couple of weeks
