Heading up the valley…. on the left the Forbes range.
The Rees valley winds back into the distance. What is really amazing is how the shape of the landscape changes the further into the valley you go. We visited this valley twice once on an overcast afternoon and then again the next day which happened to be bright blue skies…..
This is as far as we got in our not for wheel drive rent a car…..bitterly cold, incredibly still … the bush was amazing.
One afternoon we did the swamp board walk at Glenorchy deep in the southern alps of New Zealand. The skies were an incredible blue, the temperatures freezing, the sun glorious and the reflections mesmerizing!!
A fabulous family outing …… a great boardwalk, lots of places to stop and sit, to gaze at our planets incredible beauty……
I took this on the way into the southern alps in NZ a couple of weeks ago. I love the contrast between the heavy clouds and the super bright clear sky and the mist below which I captured through the front window of the car I was driving in. As a passenger I hasten to add : ).
