Wairau River valley and Lake Chalice

Wairau River valley and Lake Chalice

The line of the Wairau Fault shows up dramatically in this aerial view, with the braided Wairau River in the foreground and the Richmond Range rising sharply from the river's north bank. Lake Chalice, the product of a landslide, nestles in the range and is visible at the top of the picture.
