GATEWAY TO THE FJORDS
Fjordland National Park receives 200 rain-days every year. The day I made this photograph was turning out to be no different as heavy rains over the past 24 hours were threatening to play spoil sport.
A brief respite from the rains in the evening allowed me to venture out and assess conditions for photography...and was I glad to have waited it out !
As the sun began to set at Milford Sound, the clouds parted. I was witness to one of the most glorious sunsets in my life. To top it all, I was the only one out at this hour - so I could soak in this incredible scene all by myself !
