It's not only the grandeur of the Fiordland that amazes me but with eyes opened, some spectacular details can emerge too - just like this wonderful wall of colours and forms, deep in the maze of the Doubtful Sound.
The variety of metamorphic rocks are stained by range of minerals which are oozing through tiny cracks, the regenerating coastal vegetation including flowering rata and kamahi, mosses and lichens, all adding to eye popping palette of colours and textures that pinned my eye to this brilliant scene in front of me.
The image is a composite of 6 frames resulting in the final print size of about 100cm x 90cm at 300dpi.

I wish you could have seen the wonderful detail in the print...

No matter how much we try, and how beautiful objects humans can build but I think nobody can design more breathtaking piece of architecture than forces of Earth.

When last year my first scenic book "SOUTH" sold out and was after that discontinued after a few re-print runs, it was rather sad news to me but the retailer's interest for this book convinced my publisher to re-consider and so they decided to make an another re-print of it.

One can imagine how delighted I was receiving this wonderful news. This book is a fitting present and memorabilia for anyone travelling through the South Island, as it showcases not only the beautiful New Zealand scenic landscapes but also some cultural scenes of New Zealand's life...and of course, the book has quite a sentimental meaning to me...:)

First published in 2012 with a beautiful cover of the sunset over the Southern Alps captured from the beach near Okarito in Westland Tai Poutini NP, this time, we decided to give the book a new, updated look and changed the cover to the winter photograph of the iconic Mitre Peak of Milford Sound in Fiordland NP.

This book is now hitting the shelfs of the retailers throughout New Zealand and should be readily available, within a week or so, all across the country.

Also, this book can be purchased on my website -
http://www.nzicescapes.com/store.php

or

through the website of the publisher - http://www.pottonandburton.co.nz/store/south

Than you and Enjoy!

In his book "Mountain Light", Galen Rowel well described the wonderful phenomenon of a coloured light, caused by the earth shadow and direct sunlight interaction. This phenomenon is at its best seen a few minutes after sunset or before sunrise and is often refer to as "alpen-glow". Giving us beautiful blue-purple-pink hues we see from the ground level, this coloured light is far more splendid at high altitudes of the mountains, just like in this image from Fox Glacier in the Southern Alps of New Zealand.

...where else would you rather be...?

Linking up on my previous post...I just can't resist not to share here with you one of the jewels - highlights from my last 15 day photographic tour - the overnight stay in one of the mountaineering huts located high, in the mountainous environment of the New Zealand's Southern Alps.

We photographed in breathtakingly spectacular alpine environment, which culminated during magic times at sunset and sunrise. After the night in the hut, we continued the following morning on the hard ice exploring and photographing blue ice caves of Fox Glacier.

Imagery captured during these 2 awe-inspiring days will for sure remain one of the treasures in everyones photographic archives...as my still buzzing clients informed me...
