Tasman Lake with a Mountain Backdrop

Staying in the Mount Cook area of New Zealand and another lake – Tasman Lake which was formed and is fed from the melting Tasman Glacier. The lake is often filed with mini icebergs and although they weren’t operating when we were there you can take small boats out among them on the lake.

A perfect spot with the mountain backdrop – and also a dramatic reminder of global warming when you realise how rapidly the glacier is retreating!

Cruising along Doubtfulsound

Doubtful Sound in Fiordland National Park on New Zealand’s South Island.

Wikipedia History: Doubtful Sound was named ‘Doubtful Harbour’ in 1770 by Captain Cook, who did not enter the inlet as he was uncertain whether it was navigable under sail. It was later renamed Doubtful Sound by whalers and sealers, although it is not technically a sound but a fiord.

The Road and the Mountain

The landscape around Mount Cook on the South Island of New Zealand is one of the most amazing places you could visit. From glacial lakes to snowcapped mountain peaks I could easily spend months here watching the landscape change with the seasons and weather and taking photos. And the roads around the area just add something to photos!

Definitely must visit if you’re in New Zealand

The Lake and the Mountain

The amazing Mount Cook on New Zealand’s South Island is well worth a visit for hiking, exploring and a bit of photography.

Even better, to get to Mount Cook you need to drive alongside Lake Pukaki which has an amazing blue colour which is hard not to want to photograph.

Put the two together and wow!!! Just an amazing area in New Zealand. Wish I was back there now….

The View from the Top

New Zealand and the view from the climb up Mount Ngauruhoe (aka Mount Doom) located in the Tongariro National Park. If you’re doing the Tongariro Alpine Corssing or the Northern Circuit and the weather conditions are right this climb is well worth the effort – even with the loose scree and somewhat sketchy descent!
