This large Redwood tree trunk lives outside the Hanmer Hot Springs pool complex. One of the aspects that I enjoy about this tree is it could be the leg and foot of some enormous Saurapod, just standing there waiting for the rest of the herd to stop 'roaming the earth' and catch up. Is it strange, lazy or biased writing, when dinosaurs 'ruled' the earth they were also 'roaming' it, never 'exploring' or 'investigating' it?  You only ever hear the word 'roaming' in association with dinosaurs going about their daily business. Another tired ignorant expression that journalists vomit up when they want to elicit fear and loathing in those who choose to read or listen to them is 'shark infested waters'. Sharks are cool and damage far, far fewer people than horses.
