Mount Cook Vista

Mount Cook Vista

Mount Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand and one has to drive a short distance to be able to capture the glaciated mountain range in which it is situated. This image was taken with a Nikon D810 in the early morning autumn light in April 2016.

Milford Sound

Milford Sound

My daughter Kerry is travelling in New Zealand In April this year I visited there to catch up with her. We ventured to the South Island’s remote Fjiordland National Park and cruised up the mighty Milford Sound. This iconic location is hemmed in by mighty mountains, imposing cliffs and thundering waterfalls. I anticipated taking some great pictures of this iconic location to be briefly frustrated by heavy overcast skies and persistent drizzle. I needn’t have panicked. The sun broke through and the clipper sailed into position just as the rainbow revealed itself. Within seconds, the moment was gone, but I had my picture.

Paragliding past Skyline

Paragliding past Skyline

Every evening, large numbers of tourists gather at the 'Skyline' look-out above Queenstown. I arrived late to find every available pitch claimed by photographers with camera-mounted tripods, all pointing towards the town as the sun set and lights came on. To my right I noticed this paraglider defending silently over Lake Wanaka.
