This weird-looking valley is Eglington Flat.
This is Lake Gunn - the weird-looking gentleman in the flat cap is Him Outdoors. The weather closes in on the road to Milford.
The scarily impressive Homer Tunnel hacks through the moutain side. Before it was built, the postman had to climb the saddle to deliver messages to the settlement at Milford. Legend has it that one Christmas he lugged a bicycle over the pass. I hope the recipinet was suitably grateful, even if there was hardly any road on which to ride!
It's true that no matter how often you have seen the pictures, nothing prepares you for the majesty of Mitre Peak and Milford Sound. Spectacular in any weather, today the mists and waterfalls add atmospheric grandeur.
On our way back through the Homer Tunnel, I play with the long shutter speed and low lighting to wibbly-wobbly effect.
