Once you get into alpine country in the South Island every where you turn or stop there is a stunning vista. The image above is the usually shy Mt Cook or Aoraki – our tallest peak and in the many times I have driven past this is the FIRST time it wasn’t completely covered in clouds. This was taken from Lake Pukaki shore with my 70-200 F4 IS at full extension on the tripod.
You don’t have to go far, above is on the Milford Sound Road, the last safe spot to stop before the Avalanche No Stopping Zone which goes through to the other side of the Homer Tunnel – I’m standing on the side of the road for this image.
When I pivoted to my right, this view above was right in front of me!
The image below was take at the end of the Chasm carpark and the lighting was lovely
Two more views along the Milford Rd
The air was so cold and yet crystal clear and pure, I think I got a little high 🙂
