Milford Sound

Down the west coast of the south island in New Zealand is the most amazing ffords.  Glacial valleys carved by the path of massive glaciers and now flooded by the sea.  The cliffs rise vertically about 1,500 metres from the sea level.  It is one of the most amazing places I’ve ever visited.  We stayed on a boat overnight and was treated to one day of the most wonderfully warm weather and woke the next morning to heavy rain, storm force winds and mist that meant you could barely see the mountainous cliff just a couple of hundred yards away.  This shot was taken at sunset on day one – still, calm, and hardly any clue to the weather that awaited us the next day.
