A very cool, crisp morning on Lake Te Anau.

Very nice series. What a great place to visit and i look forward to more from your trip. The 1st and 3rd are great shots (you might want to try and crop the grass and branches out of the 3rd shot if possible). The boat and plane in the mist is my favourite of the series. Great stuff.

Very nice series. I was in NZ back in 1979, it's nice to see that it's still a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing.

I like the last one too. The bottom of the frame has nice balance and the peak through the clouds adds a bit of drama.
South Island has so many natural wonders and photographic opportunities its a wonder more Australians don't go there.

The fiordland region truly is spectacular and you've captured that very well. I thought you'd posted # 3 upside down for a moment had me twisting my head until I worked out it was a reflection

Cool shots. Makes the area look very dramatic in landscape.. I'll add that to the list of places I'd like to go someday!
