Kaikoura mountains

By dwjones
2003 on our tour of New Zealand. Travelling down towards Kaikoura from the island ferry. It was late afternoon and we just came around the corner and had to stop to capture this view.

Me and my 10D were in New Zealand in 2003, but I missed this shot and anything like it. (You may recognise the pier photo on my profile)Beautiful pic, you can see it was a 'stop you in your tracks' scene.
Anyone thinking of going to NZ - DO IT! It's Brilliant.

That drive from Picton down the Pacific coast is stunning. When I did it last year I think I stopped at this same spot.

And me, that drive was great, I followed that one by going straight over the south island to the glaciers. Great shot too, I was there at the wrong time of day and my pic didn't look anywhere near as good as this.

Indeed, the seaward Kaikoura's are a beautiful little range and the view accross the Cook Strait from my house to them is just the bizzo. Smile

A real beauty, you've captured the scene very well. (We went whale watching here, look forward to more NZ shots). Regards Paul.

What super lighting. The clouds really add to the scene and make a super photo.
