Milford Sound

Currently in Arrowtown near Queenstown in the heart of a former gold mining area on the way back from Milford Sound, this a small town that has retained many of its traditional features from that period and the town looks authentically Victorian.

Anyway, the last day has been spent in the Milford Sound, a most majestic fjord land in the South Island and a world heritage site. Overnight was spent on-board a boat that had docked for the night in a cove in Milford Sound. On arrival yesterday the weather was abysmal with rain and low cloud overhang, however the bad weather did create some amazing waterfall scenes unlike any I've ever seen previously before.

Today the weather was better and dawn was an amazing scene, the area surrounding the sound is pretty amazing place with fantastic scenery and non-stop photo opportunities. This has to be one of the best parts of my trip to New Zealand to date.
