Wading Willow

Motueka River Valley


Nina, 12

A graceful, alluring scene of colour that twines together like a painting that screams out to you and grabs your attention no matter what. The river is mix of dark bold shadings, that call out to you and the whistling of the willow trees makes your spine shiver, not that such beauty could be so scary but the aesthetic view of such makes this spot special to me in many great ways, like the way the willow trees intersect with the glistening water or how the chilling breeze cools you down after an exhausting day at school. This is why a magnificent place as such is very special to me.
