Milford Sound Sunrise

September 7th, 2011

Morning light hits the peaks rising from Milford Sound, a fjord (yes, it really is a fjord not a sound!) in south west New Zealand. I got hugely lucky with the weather for this shot, as Milford Sound is the wettest inhabited place in New Zealand and one of the wettest in the world. New Zealand is a fairly long way south, which means in winter you can wake up at 7am and still have time to get out and catch the sunset! I drove down in the morning and caught this scene. Perfect weather, a lovely crisp -3 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, brilliantly calm water.

Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM, CPL, Adobe Lightroom.

Wasn't this image already on the front page before? It's really awesome, anyway.

Simply unbelievable, magical. Instantly my desktop.

Can't possibly think of a way. I agree with commenter #1: it is a place I would love to visit some day.

Amazing shot! The reflections and the colours are awesome and the light is fantastic.

For me is almost perfect, I don't know how to improve this wonderful image.

What a beautiful, restful image. It is almost totally serene. Please give us more.

I would have asked the small craft to move aside for a moment or two.

Absolutely Beautiful !

The silence in the photo is deafening ...

The only way this image can be improved is by putting me there at the time you took the shot ...
