The wild beauty at Glenorchy, South Island, NZ

Location: Glenorchy Lagoon, Glenorchy, South Island, New Zealand (44°50'37.36"S 168°23'38.12"E)
Date: 21 May 2009, 4.40pm
Camera: Canon 400D with Sigma 17-70/f2.8-4.5

I have written before that Glenorchy is fast becoming very popular as the outdoor set for many adventure movies with emphasis on wild and beautiful landscape. It is also fast becoming known to adventure travelers as a playground. This will come as no surprise to Kiwis as they have long known the beauty, ruggedness and potential of this place- any trampers to the fabulous trails of Routeburn, Rees and Dart have to start their journey from here. It has snow-covered mountains, lakes, rivers as well as incredible wildlife and flora. I could spend weeks here without any problems- as long as I can also access my internet.
