It really was an ray ban 2113 impressive sight," said Nawalaniec, who is from Carterton. "The lake behind it is not particularly big or deep it hasn't impounded a large volume of water so there's no particular downstream hazard as a result of the slip," she ray ban wayfarer 2 said. "If it was bigger we might talk to [the Department of Conservation] about the position of Cone Hut [several kilometres downstream] and whether that might be in danger but at this stage I'm not seeing that as being a particular issue given the description and the location.".
