Another long day of driving 6 hours to and from Milford Sound from Queenstown, but it is SO worth it! Picture perfect day for weather once again and mother nature turned it on for me as I drove into Te Anau, the entry towards Milford Sound.
I got shots of ice caked rocks with rushing water coming down rivers. Early morning mist on long sweeping plains, waterfalls, plants frozen solid, panoramas of misty snow capped mountains. For the first time I witnessed an avalanche at Homer Tunnel. It was scary and exhilarating all at the same time. Needless to say I didn’t stick around long after that and continued on to Milford pronto.
Milford Sound is so beautiful, a natural fiord carved by an ancient glacier. It’s filled with wildlife, tall snow capped mountains and crystal clear blue water. I am so happy with the shots I got and can’t wait to get home and see them on my large computer screen. While travelling out of the sound I had my GoPro mounted on the front of the Milford Sovereign ship I was travelling on. Got some interesting shots with it.
Well, tomorrow I think I’ll take a break and cruise for while. See where the wind takes me. To be honest you can point you camera anywhere here in and around Queenstown and you’re pretty much guaranteed a great shot 🙂
