Mokau horizon


This is the view from Mokau looking west towards the Tasman Sea. On this day, the ocean was as still as glass - like you could walk on it and keep walking until your feet found another land. 

You can see here the gentle curve of the planet. The same curve that determines the shape of a crescent moon. 

That horizon looks like many things: a tightrope, a silver wall, a fallen sword.
