Yeah! Too easy, there was an article about a guy who did a world record of jump from that bridge, or something like that...
Anyone can have a go next. My pictures are too difficult to guess... :-)

That's correct. Fascinating mixing of local clear mountain streams with the silt laden waters of the Dart as it flows into Lake Wakatipu.
