Christchurch, New Zealand - 3

Let me dedicate this post to the Christchurch Cathedral. The iconic church's tower has since collapsed and many regard the earlier photos taken of this tower to be priceless.  I was there just on time for the Flower's Festival 2011. The entire church was decorated with flowers of various colours. It was a sight to behold.

Your photos are bloody gorgeous! Clearly you have an eye for photography. I went here and took some pictures as well but none of them came out as pretty as yours.
