Early Morning Reflections - Mitre Peak, Milford Sound

While reviewing images taken this year in order to create a calendar, this one brought back fond memories of our visit to the Fiordland National Park.  One of our sons had returned from North America with his wife for a summer visit.  We joined them on a tour of the South Island.  Milford Sound was one of the must-see places on the tour.

It had rained heavily during the night, not an unusual occurrence in this wettest part of New Zealand.  In the morning the air was still and the scenery was fresh and crisp. Mitre Peak, an icon in the Sound, was displayed at its best. This one of my favourite images of the year.

  1. Good image, it was a good idea to place the rocks in the foreground. I visited there years ago, sadly the wet weather you alluded to made it difficult to get a decent picture. ;-(

    • Thanks for your comment Kevin. We were very fortunate with the weather. It rained heavily the previous evening and on-and-off during the night. In the morning the sky was clear and crisp and there was no breeze to ruffle the water. The situation of your visit is not unusual as the Milford Sound area is the wettest place in New Zealand. Better luck next time 🙂
