The annoying thing about capturing photos of this calibre is the very early morning and late late afternoon wait. One is too early and the other is walking back in the dark. :(

i saw a jigsaw puzzle of pieces of a mountain poking out of the clouds
the chances of going to look at south island mountains and seeing very little can be very high... my experience at milford sound is 50 50
