I took a drive from Queenstown to Kingston early one morning and on my way there I was blown away by the constantly changing lighting conditions on the landscapes. The sun breaking through the slow moving clouds on the mountain peaks was a real awaking to just how amazing this part of the country truly is. I could have sat in one spot the entire day and within every five to ten minutes it would have looked like a totally different place. So taken by it all, the trip to Kingston was a long one. Not because of the distance I had to travel, but solely because I was having to stop the car very few kms to grab another shot.
These two shots are of the same mountain range —Bayonet Peak I think? Just a few kms apart.
Following on from yesterday’s post with the Glenorchy Lagoon, this is on the Queenstown side of Glenorchy on the return trip back to Queenstown. At the end of the road is Pigeon Island.
At one end of lake Wakatipu is Glenorchy. It’s a quiet little town with big vistas of Mount Bonpland, Mount Alfred and the Dart River which flows into the lake from its left. This shot of Glenorchy Lagoon was taken looking back toward Glenorchy on the road that goes to Routeburn.
