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.
