The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that stuck the South Island of New Zealand on November 14, 2016, have changed the geography of the region, particularly around the epicenter. In the countryside around Waiau, about 30km east of Hanmer Springs, where the shaking was the highest, a section of the earth has lifted vertically forming a long rocky wall, fifteen foot tall.

These impressive pictures were captured by Dr. Kate Pedley, of University of Canterbury's Department of Geological Sciences, when she and her colleagues encountered this massive fracture in the landscape as they were surveying countryside for evidence of faulting.
