Heavens Darkest Shore
Day’s last light rays touch the highest clouds of a storm approaching. Intense rainfall followed enduring throughout the night. The rain comes in from the Tasman See. This shore in southern New Zealand is facing towards southern Australia. Hence it faces the west wind drift of the roaring forties of the southern oceans. Going south the annual rainfall amount increases with very kilometer reaching a maximum within the Fiordland on the southernmost tip of New Zealand.
