more pictures from the holiday

a couple of lakes… Lake Matheson at dawn on the Saturday just past with striking views of Mt Cook/Aoraki & Mt Tasman…

Lake Matheson is so still that it throws wonderful reflections of Aoraki/Mt Cook and Mt Tasman in the main divide of the Southern Alps of New Zealand. We had to walk in pre-dawn to capture this image - fortunately the track was excellent!

and Lake Mapourika also on the West Coast just north of Franz Josef Glacier…

The human-made jetty at Lake Mapourika seems to add something to the beauty - that cannot be said for all human interventions on the landscape!

One thought on “more pictures from the holiday

  1. Hi Martin,
    Lovely pics, certainly worth the pre-dawn walk šŸ™‚

    one thing the jetty adds to the landscape is it emphasises the symmetry, yet not quite symmetry of the scene. I like it.
