Title swallowed land
Photographer Yuichi Hayakawa
Organization name Center for Spatial Information Science
The University of Tokyo
Location Castle Hill, New Zealand
Date February 6, 2015
Explanation  Castle Hill area near Christchurch in New Zealand is famous for its spectacular landscape. This photo shows a view of Leith Hill on the outskirts of the area. There is no distinct deposition of debris at the foot of the sliding greywacke slope – unusually. The sinkhole-like appearance of the landslide is quite unique. The slope is supposed to have been stable at least for 40 years, as almost no change is identified from an old photograph taken in 1970s.
