Here are Mount Aspiring and Wanaka. I had to take a pciture of Mt Aspiring as it is the favourite mountain of Him Outdoors. When I mentioned this to a travelling companion she looked bemused - doesn't everyone have a favourite mountain? Mine's the Matterhorn, thanks for asking.
Mt Cook and Lake Pukaki were glistening in the winter sun, while the braided rivers shone across the Canterbury Plains.
As you can see, the Mischievous Minx was enthralled by it all as we stopped over in Christchurch.
Not to be outdone, the Kaikouras and the approach to Wellington were splendid on the second flight.
